Step 1: Application Deadlines
When can I apply?
The majority of RUC master’s programmes only have study start once a year on September 1.
Four of master’s programmes have extraordinary winter admission for February 2023 and February 2024: Business Administration and Leadership (English language programme), Global and Development Studies (English language programme), Virksomhedsledelse (Danish language programme) and Politik & Forvaltning (Danish language programme).
The digital application system (DANS) is available one month before the application deadline. We strongly recommend that you apply well in advance of the application deadline as you may encounter unforeseen problems during the application process, including technical problems. Please be aware that it is your own responsibility to apply within the stated deadlines. We do not accept applications submitted after the application deadline.
