The part-time programs offered as Continuing Education are subject to tuition fees. Therefore most of the students attending part-time Continuing Education at Aalborg University are employed adults who attend a course or a complete program while being financed by their employer. There are, however, also students who finance their studies without financial support from their workplace.
The tuition fee covers teaching, tutoring and examination (max. three attempts per exam).
When you read about the programs and modules/courses on our website, you will notice that two forms of tuition fee are listed: a tuition fee for Danish citizens and citizens from an EU or EEA country, and a tuition fee for citizens from other countries. This is due to the fact that the University receives state subsidies for Danish citizens and citizens from an EU/EEA country but not for citizens from other countries.
EU citizens are nationals from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus (applies to the Greek-Cypriot area only), the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
EEA citizens are citizens from Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland.
Nationals of Switzerland are covered by the same rules as EU and EEA citizens.
Exception for non-eu/eea citizens
If you are a non-EU or non-EEA citizen and hold one of the below mentioned Danish residence permits at the time of application to Aalborg University, you will be charged the same tuition fee as Danish and EU/EEA citizens.
- A permanent residence permit
- A residence permit with the possibility of a permanent residency
- A temporary residence permit with a view to temporary residence in Denmark after the Danish Aliens Act, Consolidation section 7 (1 and 2), and section 8 (1 and 2)
- A temporary residence permit with a view to temporary residence permit or with the possibility of a permanent residency after the Danish Aliens Act, Consolidation section 9 (1), or section 9 c (1) as a result of a familiar association to a foreign with a residence permit after section 7 (1 and 2) or section 8 (1 and 2)
- A residence permit after the Danish Aliens Act, Consolidation section 9 m (1) as an accompanying child of a foreign, who hold a residence permit based on employment etc. after the Danish Aliens Act, Consolidation section 9 a.
Citizens from the United Kingdom after Brexit
If you are a UK citizen and you - before 1 January 2021 - are residing permanently in Denmark in accordance with the EU rules on free movement, the tuition fee is the same as for EU and EEA citizens. Your status of residency in Denmark must be documented in your application. For further information please refer to the website of The Danish Ministry of Immigration and Integration.
Payment of Tuition Fees
If you are accepted at a course or program, we will send you an invoice with payment information.
Please note: The office for Continuing Education at Aalborg University has no possibility of giving grants towards the tuition fees and cannot offer to help finding or applying for grants.
