Guide: How to apply for mandatory credit transfer
If you already have obtained a bachelor’s degree, you can apply for a credit transfer, but it is not a requirement.
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.
You apply for an exemption by:
- uploading an exemption application
Programmes at Roskilde University excluded from the rule:
If you apply for admission to a study programme included in the Ministry’s positive list (only in Danish), you will not be affected by the rules on the limitation on second degrees. The following programmes are included in this list for admission in 2017 and 2018:
- Computer Science
At Roskilde University, if you apply for admission to the International Bachelor in Natural Science, you must upload a separate document stating if you wish to study the bachelor’s subject in either Computer Science or Mathematics.
