Re-enrolment

You must apply for re-enrolment if you have previously studied the same full-time programme and passed the equivalent of one year or more of the programme you are applying for. This is regardless of whether you previously studied at UCPH or at another Danish university.

 

You can be re-enrolled if

  1. The programme has vacant places.

  2. You were a full-time student in the same master’s degree programme at UCPH or at another Danish university.

  3. You have passed the equivalent of one year of the programme you are applying for.
  4. It has been at least five months since you were disinrolled.

  5. You meet the programme's admission requirements.

In case of re-enrolment, you will follow the most recent curriculum. If you have been enrolled under another curriculum, you might not get a credit transfer for some of your passed exams. Please also note that your previous examination attempts and the study activity requirements that were in force when you were disenrolled from the programme will still apply.

For technical reasons, you must use the link ‘Apply for transfer’ if you have studied at another Danish university – your application will, however, still be handled as a case of re-enrolment. Please, upload all relevant documentation as in an application for re-enrolment.
