You are a citizen from outside the EU/EEA and does not have a residence permit that gives you access to free higher education

If you are a citizen of a country from outside the EU/EEA and either have a residence permit for staying in Denmark temporarily or no residence permit at all, but plan to commute to Denmark from your home country, you can apply for admission to the Teacher Education as a self-paying student.

Self-paying students are themselves responsible for their stay in Denmark. Admission to one of University College Absalons Danish educational programmes does not give the self-paying student access to Denmark or permits for staying in Denmark.

We can help you if you wish to apply for a student visa, but we cannot guarantee that you will receive a student visa. You can read more about this on the site Nyidanmark.

As a self-paying student your admission will be on the condition, that you pay for the 1st Semester of the education before study start.

You must fulfill the same admission requirements as other applicants and you will receive an answer to your application ultimo July, unless you need to apply for VISA – then please read the information under Fee at the bottom of the page.
