As a non-EU citizen you need a student residence permit when studying in Denmark. The university will start the application form (ST1 form) and send part 2 to you to fill out, as soon as possible after you have paid the tuition fee in May.
When part 2 has been submitted, the application form will be registered with the Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI).
The processing of the case will only start when they have received the entire application (parts 1 and 2), including all relevant documentation. The application process for a residence permit usually takes 2-3 months.
If you are conditionally admitted to the programme we will start a conditional ST1. You will not get your student residence permit until you are fully admitted to the programme. We will send your final admission letter to SIRI and they will complete the form and complete the student residence permit.
If SIRI decides to reject your application, you will get a refund of your tuition fee.
If you are an EU citizen, you must apply for an EU Registration Certificate upon arrival in Denmark.
Certain residence permit will exempt you from payment of tuition fee.
The application portal is open for non-EU/EEA applicants from 15 November to 15 January. If you have doubts whether you hold a residence permit that exempts you from paying tuition fee, please apply by this deadline.
