questions about the application procedure?
We have gathered some of the frequently asked questions about the application procedure.
Applications for Master’s programmes must be submitted in the Danish application portal. You need to create a profile in the application portal in order to submit your application(s) for the study programme(s) of your choice.
Download guide to the Application Portal:
The entire set of documentation must be uploaded to each of your applications. For ease of understanding, please merge each individual document into one file before uploading. For instance - If you have transcripts of six pages, please merge them into one file, do not upload them as six different files. This goes for all the application requirements.
Please note: Aalborg University does not accept documents sent by post or email.
If the documents you have uploaded are not sufficient, you will be requested to submit further documentation. We will give you a detailed explanation of extra documentation we need from you and give you a deadline for uploading it to us.
Danish residence permit card and letter (only applies to non-EU citizens – who already have a residence permit in Denmark)

We will answer your application with one of the followiing decisions:
You fulfil all requirements and have been offered a place at Aalborg University.
You do not fulfil the entire admission requirements. You will receive a message in the application portal which outlines the specific conditions you must fulfil and document before you can be fully admitted. The message states a deadline within which you must fulfil and document the admission requirements.
Please note that you cannot study at Aalborg University on a conditional admission. You must be fully admitted in order to initiate your studies, unless you are admitted on the condition that you complete supplementary courses simultaneously with your studies here. The latter option is only possible for applicants holding an EU-citizenship.
You do not fulfil the admission requirements. It will be specified in the rejection message precisely which criteria you did not fulfil.
You must respond to the offer within the deadline stated in the message in the application portal. The offer can be either unconditional or conditional. Usually you will have only a few days to respond. You must respond to the offer, otherwise you will lose the offer, and the place will be passed on to the next qualified applicant.
You are obliged under Danish legislation to state and apply for a credit transfer for all passed courses from previously studies at the same level.
