International opportunities

With a completed AP Degree, you are able to enter the labour market directly after graduating, but you also have the opportunity to go abroad and top up with a Bachelor’s degree. Depending on your choice of bachelor’s degree as well as the specific country in which you want to study, this will take between 1 and 2 years.

The foreign university typically requires information about the programme elements you have completed as well as the comprehensiveness of these elements. Furthermore, they will require information about your grades and a reference to the curriculum for your specific study programme.

UCN has decided not to establish specific cooperation agreements with foreign universities regarding top-up study programmes since we have experienced that our students request individualised solutions. Therefore, you must explore your opportunities yourself.

If you feel confused by all this information, it might be beneficial to address an organisation which help organise stays abroad; mainly in Australia, USA, Hong Kong, England, Canada, Hawaii etc.

These organisations will typically be one of the following:

If you have any other requests, the international office will be able to help you establish contact and provide you with guidance and direction - free of charge – when you have found the foreign university you are interested in applying for. Please contact us by the e-mail: international@ucn.dk
