Last modified: 18.06.2019

In this newsletter you can find information regarding SU (state educational grants) rules and other SU matters for you to take into consideration during your studies

Please note that it is your responsibility to gain knowledge of and comply with the SU rules. You can find more information at su.dk and en.aau.dk/education/su. If you need more information regarding SU, feel free to contact the SU Office.

Bachelor´s programme/Master`s programme

Remember to apply for SU for your Master’s programme if you complete your Bachelor´s programme this summer

SU is granted for a certain study programme. Your Bachelor´s programme and your Master´s programme are considered two different programmes.  

If you expect to complete your Bachelor’s programme before the end of August, and you are admitted to a Master’s programme starting 1 September, you must remember to apply for SU for the Master’s programme as from July if you wish to receive SU in the summer period (July and August). If you wish to apply for SU for your Master´s programme as from July, you can apply via MinSU 1 June at the earliest, since you can apply for SU only one month in advance. If you wish to receive SU in the beginning of July, you must apply no later than mid-June since a processing time of two weeks must be expected. It is not possible to apply for SU retroactively and for that reason you must apply for SU as from July no later than 31 July.

You are not eligible for SU during the summer if you graduate from your Bachelor´s programme in May or earlier. In this case you can apply for SU for your Master´s programme as from September.

If you are granted exemption to sign up for Master´s programme courses while completing your Bachelor´s programme

If you are granted exemption to sign up for Master´s programme courses while completing your Bachelor´s programme, please note that you are enrolled in the Bachelor´s programme thus eligible for SU only for the Bachelor´s programme. In this case you must prolong your Bachelor´s programme at minSU - ”Ret din SU – Forlæng uddannelse”. If you have no SU rates left for your Bachelor’s programme, you may apply for a loan “Slutlån”. Once you have completed your Bachelor’s programme, you can apply for SU for your Master’s programme.

If you are delayed in your Bachelor´s programme or your Master´s programme

If you are delayed in your programme, you must prolong your programme at minSU ”Ret din SU – Forlæng uddannelse”. Please note that if you hold a public transportation card “Ungdomskort” or if you receive transportation grants “kilometerpenge”,  you must re-apply for these when prolonging your programme.

Transportation Card “Ungdomskort” and Transportation Grants “Kilometerpenge”

New Rules as of 1 July 2019 relating to Transportation Card “Ungdomskort” and Transportation Grants “Kilometerpenge”

As of 1 July 2019 new rules will apply to Transportation Card “Ungdomskort” and Transportation Grants “Kilometerpenge”. You can read more about the new rules here.

Transportation Grants “Kilometerpenge” will stop after the payment for the month of June, and you will have to apply again according to the new rules. The new rules means that you will only receive Transportation Grants “Kilometerpenge” for the actual days of travelling between your place of residence and your place of study. This means that you will not receive a fixed amount each month, the amount you will receive depends on how many days you have driven between your place of residence and your place of study. If you do not have teaching in the summer period (July and August) you are not entitled to Transportation Grants “Kilometerpenge” until the month of September.

At the moment we do not know how and when you can apply for Transportation Grants “Kilometerpenge” according to the new rules. Therefore, keep yourself informed on ungdomskort.dk and su.dk.
