How does the admission procedure work?

1

Choose universities

Select the right program for you based on your academic curriculum, career opportunities, city culture and cost of living, and other personal preferences. Our tutors can guide you in this important choice by also discussing university material if you have any doubts about what you would like to study.
 

2

Prepare your documents and optimize your grades

Danish universities have a predominantly administrative application process, where your report card carries a high weight. If your grades are not in great shape at the moment, you can work on them together with our tutors with targeted lessons subject by subject.

In addition to the grades, you will have to send a motivational and cover letter, which is your chance to stand out from the many candidates, and which we can help you write in the best possible way.
 

3

Make sure you meet the language requirements 

Many Danish universities require a certificate attesting to your level of English, usually by passing the Academic IELTS exam with a grade of at least 6.5 or 7/9. Our tutors can assist you with exam preparation or we can direct you to the best group courses, if that is your preference.
 

4

Register and send your application

The final step is registering on the online portal "Optagelse" and sending the application with all forms and documents.
