Have you already completed a bachelor’s degree in Denmark?
If you have already completed, or before the semester start will complete, a bachelor’s programme in Denmark, you may be restricted from applying to a new bachelor’s programme.
Limitation on second degrees
As a general rule, it is only possible to enrol in an additional Danish government-funded higher education at the same (or lower) level six years after the completion of the first higher education. The limitation applies to all study programmes under the Ministry of Higher Education and Science.
This means that if you have completed a full-time bachelor’s degree in Denmark, you must wait six years before enrolling in a new full-time bachelor’s programme. However, a number of exemptions apply and certain bachelor’s subjects at Roskilde University are excluded from this rule.
Non-EU/EEA citizens that have paid tuition fees for the complete bachelor’s programme in Denmark are not restricted from applying for a second bachelor’s degree.
You can apply for an exemption, if one of the following conditions is met:
- Due to health conditions: If the university assesses that your health condition prevents you from using the completed degree in the labour market.
- Due to changes in the study programme: If the university assesses that your completed degree has changed significantly or no longer exists.
