Dispensations and special permissions
Dispensation - special circumstances (reduced GPA)
Dispensation DUE TO SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES REDUCING YOUR GRADE POINT AVERAGE
In case special circumstances have reduced your grade point average (GPA), you can apply for dispensation. In your application, you must submit documentation showing that your GPA was reduced due to special circumstances. Please note, Aalborg University rarely grant dispensation and that a dispensation is not a guarantee of you being enrolled.
Please notice that the dispensation is solely for entry restricted programmes and only if you hold a qualifying upper secondary school exam that is considered equivalent to a Danish upper secondary school exam and your grade point average (GPA) can be converted into the Danish grading scale.
We advise that you apply for exemption before 15 March.
Special permission to apply for admission
If you do not hold a qualifying upper secondary school exam it may be possible for you to apply for admission with special permission. You must submit documentation (diplomas) showing that you possess general as well as specific academic qualifications equivalent to those of an applicant holding a qualifying exam. Please note that in regards to programmes with a restricted entry very few study places are allocated to applicants with special permission.
