September 2019 intake opens
Following the first academic year, only few study places are available at AAU’s study programmes. If you are granted credit transfer for the entire first academic year of a study programme, you can apply for admission to one of these study places. Technically, this application procedure is called ‘enrolment’.
A number of conditions apply to enrolment to a study programme after the first year:
If you have an international qualifying entry examination and you are applying for admission to a study programme taught in Danish, you must have passed the Study Test in Danish as a Second Language (module 6 of the Danish language course 3) or Danish A. If you are a citizen of any of the Nordic countries and have a Nordic qualifying entry examination, you are not required to pass a Danish language test.
If you apply for admission to a programme taught in English, your English language qualifications must be comparable to the English B level of Danish upper secondary school.
If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the number of available study places and if the individual study programme has not stipulated other selection criteria, all applicants will be admitted on the basis of their grade point average. For applicants applying for enrolment to a Bachelor's programme, the assessment will be based on the grade point average of their upper secondary education. For applicants applying for enrolment to a Master's programme, the assessment will be based on the grade point average of their Bachelor's degree.

You will receive a response to your application shortly before the semester start date.
