Tuition Fees & Scholarships in Denmark
Denmark is one of the most egalitarian societies in the world. The Danish welfare model ensures a healthy work-life balance as well and healthcarefor all. As an international student in Denmark you too will benefit from our efficient public services.
Freedom for the individual, equality, respect, tolerance and a strong sense of mutual trust are core values in Denmark. This is also reflected in the way we organize our workplaces and educate our youth. Denmark ranks a one of the safest, most democratic and least corrupt countries in the world and tops United Nations Education Index.
Higher education in Denmark is free for students from the EU/EEA and Switzerland. Similarly, if you are participating in an exchange programme your studies in Denmark are free. You also do not pay for tuition if you at the time of application have a:
-Permanent residence permit ('permanent opholdstilladelse')
-Temporary residence permit that can be upgraded to a permanent one ('midlertidig opholdstilladelse mmf varigt ophold')
-Residence permit as the accompanying child of a non-EU/EEA parent holding a residence permit based on employment
All other students must pay tuition fees. Annual tuition fees for full-degree students USD 8,000-21,000 / Euro 6,000-16,000 (DKK 45,000-120,000). Note: for exact fees you should contact the institution in question.
Students from outside EU/EEA/Switzerland will be charged a fee when applying for a residence permit (visa) to study in Denmark.
Most Danish institutions have bilateral agreements with foreign institutions of higher education. These agreements are usually designed for mutual exchange of students, researchers and teachers. National and European programmes offer scholarships for international students wishing to study in Denmark through an institutional agreement, as guest students or as a part of an international double or joint degree.
