As a non-EU/EAA citizen you may be granted a Danish residence permit in order to study in Denmark.
To be granted a residence permit, you must prove in writing that:
- You have been accepted as a student to a higher education course/programme at a university, college or institute that has been approved by the Danish government.
- You are either completing an entire educational programme offered by a Danish institution of higher learning or you are a visiting/guest student attending part of a programme that you have already commenced in your country of residence.
- You can support yourself financially for the duration of your stay. If you are to pay a tuition fee, you must document that you have paid the tuition fee for the first semester or year, instead of documenting that you can support yourself. (Please note: foreign students do not usually receive state grants or benefits in Denmark. If you make a false claim for such assistance, your residence permit may be revoked and you risk deportation.)
You can speak and understand the language of instruction and have a functional command of either Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, English or German.
