Extension of Admission
If you are enrolled in the University of Copenhagen as an international exchange or guest student, you may apply to extend your enrolment. Note, however, that you cannot be enrolled in the University of Copenhagen as an exchange or guest student for more than two years in total.
Application Procedure for Extension of Admission
If you wish to apply to extend your enrolment, please:
Contact your department(s) or faculty administration at University of Copenhagen and apply for extension. If you take courses in more than one department and plan to do so again next semester you need e-mails from all the departments in order to be able to sign up for courses or register for exams. The confirmation must include your name, student ID-number and information about whether you will be using the exchange agreement or not. If you are using an Erasmus agreement and you wish to continue as an Erasmus student within this field and/or other fields, you must get approval of extension from the department in charge of the Erasmus agreement you are using. Students studying Theology, African Studies, LIFE Sciences, Health Sciences and/or Pharmaceutical Sciences should contact the faculty administration - if in doubt, please contact the International Office, INTemail@example.com.
Contact your home university and get a letter or preferably e-mail stating that you can extend the desired period of study as an exchange student.
If you cannot extend within the framework of the exchange agreement, you may apply for extension as an individual guest student. Please note that individual guest students are required to pay tuition fees. More information on this is available here.
When you have gathered all the required documents, forward the letters or e-mails to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then register your extension in the university’s student database. You will receive an e-mail with notification of your extension from our office.
There is no deadline for extensions, but once you have decided to apply for an extension, it is a good idea to start gathering the documents as soon as possible. Your departments at the University of Copenhagen might have course or exam registration deadlines you should meet. Please contact your department with questions regarding this.
Your current student card will be valid for the next semester when we extend your stay in our database.
You are most welcome to contact us with any questions you may have
