The Faculty of Science has a very limited number of scholarships to award outstanding non-EU/EEA MSc applicants. The scholarships are allocated to students with excellent academic performance.

What does the Scholarship cover?

The scholarship is granted to cover:

  • tuition fees
  • living expenses (2022 level: DKK 9670 per month for 22 months).

Who are considered for a Scholarship?

All non-EU/EEA applicants with a grade point average above 85% of their bachelor’s degree will be considered for a scholarship. This means that you do not need to make a separate application for the scholarship.

If your grade point average is below 85% you will unfortunately not be considered for the scholarship.

In 2021 the recipients of the  scholarships had a GPA of more than 95%.

Selection criteria for the scholarships

Apart from the GPA of applicants, the faculty will also take into consideration the general employability of the graduates from different MSc programmes. Furthermore it will be ensured that the scholarships are allocated with a geographical diversification of the recipients.

In addition, the faculty may choose to allocate some scholarships to support collaboration with applicants from the faculty’s non-European strategic partners

2nd Year Scholarship

Each year The Faculty of Science examines the academic performance of fee-paying students who have completed the first year at the faculty. The very best will be awarded a scholarship to cover both tuition fees and living expenses for the 2nd year of their programme.

If you are awarded the scholarship, you will be contacted by the end of August/start of September before the beginning of your 2nd year. If you already paid tuition fees for the second year, they will be refunded.

In 2022 the fee-paying students who were awarded this scholarship had a GPA of 10.5 or higher on the Danish grading scale.
