Further education

The Service, Hospitality and Tourism Management programme gives you access to further education

As a graduate of Service, Hospitality and Tourism Management there are different ways to go if you are looking to educate yourself further. UCN provides a number of options.

The Service, Hospitality and Tourism Management programme is a basis for further education (top-up degree programmes) in Denmark or abroad.

Graduates of Service, Hospitality and Tourism Management may be able to transfer credit from previous study or work experience towards further studies.


The bachelor programmes typically take from six months to two years to complete. The duration of the programme depends on the university you choose and the amount of credit that can be transferred.

Top-up programmes

At UCN, graduates of Service, Hospitality and Tourism Management can continue their studies in one of these top-up programmes: 

As graduate of Service, Hospitality and Tourism Management you do not qualify for admission to the Bachelor’s Degree Programme in International Sales and Marketing. However, you do have qualifications that can be compared to the entrance requirements. This means that you can apply for exemption from the entrance requirements if you request an individual prior learning assessment (IPLA).

An individual prior learning assessment (IPLA – Individual Prior Learning Assessment – exemption from entrance requirements) will tell you whether your application for admission to a study programme may be considered for quota 2 admission. Learn more about individual prior learning assessment.

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
