Denmark - Financial Information

Tuition Fees

Higher education in Denmark is free for students from the EU/EEA and Switzerland.

There are currently no private universities in Denmark.

Loans, Grants & Scholarships

There are no government loans and grants available to EU citizens who have not previously lived in Denmark. Danish nationals and EU citizens who have lived in the country for more than five years will find support very generous by international standards, however.

There have been some recent court cases from EU students trying to claim grants from the Danish government but these have so far been inconclusive. We would suggest that you do not count on gaining any Danish financial aid but as tuition fees are zero, as an international student you are already being heavily subsidized by the local taxpayer.

There are some scholarship opportunities available to British students on occasion. Universities sometimes award scholarships for some of their Master’s programmes so check with your chosen institution.

One example is the BHJ Scholarship at the University of Southern Denmark

Six one-year scholarships are issued each year: three for studies within a technical field i.e. Mechatronics and Innovation & Business respectively, and three are for studies within the field of business administration i.e. Business Relationship Management.

A scholarship of DKK 40.000 may be granted if and when the requirements are met. It is paid in two instalments of DKK 20.000 per semester. The scholarship grant depends on acceptance and enrolment as a full-time student in one of the above mentioned programmes.
