From 1 July 2016, students who are delayed by more than six months (30 ECTS) in their studies will no longer be entitled to an SU grant under the State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme in Denmark. The new rules apply to students who start a new post-secondary degree on 1 July 2016 or later. For example, these rules apply to you if you: 

  • finish your Bachelor’s degree programme during the summer of 2016, and subsequently start a Master’s degree programme
  • start a Bachelor’s degree programme or a professional Bachelor’s degree programme
  • switch from one Bachelor’s degree programme to another Bachelor’s degree programme
  • switch from one Master’s degree programme to another Master’s degree programme
  • switch from a professional Bachelor’s degree programme to a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programme.  

If you started your degree programme before 1 July 2016, you are still allowed a maximum delay of 12 months (60 ECTS) before your SU grant is stopped.

You can find more information and a FAQ about the new rules at the SU homepage.
