We are planning for all courses to be taught in-person in the spring 2022 semester. There are currently no plans to offer hybrid or online courses.

If you have specific questions about your courses (including registration), please contact the departments directly. You can find information from them in your letter of admission.

When entering Denmark, there can be slightly different rules and requirements depending on a) where you are travelling from, and b) whether you have been vaccinated or previously infected with COVID-19.

To see which rules apply to you, please visit the Danish authorities’ website here:

Get fully vaccinated if you can
To limit potential complications during your stay, we encourage all students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. For instance, being fully vaccinated will typically mean that you do not have to isolate/quarantine on arrival in Denmark.
