If you are a citizen of a country outside the Nordic countries or the EU/EEA, you must hold a residence permit in order to reside and study in Denmark.
If you wish to apply for a residence permit as a student, both you and the educational institution in Denmark must supply information for the processing of your application.
After you get admitted to a programme and pay the tuition fees for the first semester, UCN will begin its part of the student visa procedures.
You must obtain the permit before you arrive in Denmark, so please note that the processing time at the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration is two months.
EU/EEA/Swiss citizens can live, work and study in Denmark under the EU regulations on freedom of movement anddo not need a visitor’s visa, residence or work permit. However, they should obtain an EU residence document (registration certificate) from the State Administration after arrival.
