Have you received a letter from Styrelsen for Institutioner og Uddannelsesstøtte with the headline ” Vigtig information om din støttetid” read here:

Last modified: 14.09.2020

The letter informs you about the possibility for 12 extra grant portions. You have received the letter because we do not have the information concerning the year of your qualifying exam. When you start your education, you are granted SU corresponding to the education’s prescribed duration in months.

Please note that the extra 12 grant portions can only be used if you are delayed in your studies. Therefore, you only need to apply if you are delayed in your studies. 

If you are admitted to your first higher education course no later than two years after your first completed qualifying exam, you will receive SU to the prescribed duration of the education + 12 extra grant portions. If you have taken your bachelor degree abroad we do not have the information concerning your qualifying exam, in this case you can apply for the extra 12 grant portions on minSU ('Søg SU' > 'Støttetid'). If you apply for the 12 extra grant portions, you must remember to upload your diploma for your qualifying exam and the bachelor diploma if you receive SU to a master programme.

If you are admitted to your first higher education course later than two years after your first completed qualifying exam, you are not entitled to the 12 extra grant portions, and therefore you can ignore the letter.

However, you can apply for dispensation for the 2-year deadline for starting your first higher education course in special circumstances, such as

  • Military service
  • Adoption or maternity leave
  • Protracted illness

You can apply for dispensation on minSU ('Søg SU' > 'Støttetid'). Remember to upload the diploma for your qualifying exam and the bachelor diploma if you receive SU to a master programme together with relevant documentation for the dispensation.

If you have questions regarding the above please write to su@aau.dk
