Transfer and change of study programme

Transfer may be applied for by students at another university than Aarhus University who wish to be transferred to the same degree programme at Aarhus University.

Change of study programme may be applied for by students at Aarhus University who wish to change their studies from one Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programme to another. The change must not be considered simply a change of track/line or specialisation.

Medicine, Odontology or Psychology
At present, it is not possible to apply for transfer to these degree programmes. Possible applications or applications for dispensation will not processed by the board of studies, but rejected. If it becomes possible to transfer into these programmes at a later date, it will be announced on these pages.

Economics and Business Administration, BSc and HA
At Aarhus BSS, the BSc and HA degree programmes are offered in both Aarhus and Herning. Students are not allowed to change location. This means that students admitted from September 2018 and onwards cannot be transferred from Herning to Aarhus or from Aarhus to Herning. If exceptional circumstances arise, the student may apply to the board of studies for dispensation from this rule.

Applicants with non-Danish qualifications
It is not possible to apply for transfer with non-Danish qualifications. If you wish to transfer to Aarhus University from an non-Danish institution, you must apply for regular admission. If you are granted admission, Aarhus University will always assess whether credit transfers may be granted for previously passed courses or subjects.

Application guides

 

Application deadlines

There are two annual application deadlines. As from winter admission 2017/18, the application deadlines for transfer or change of study programme will follow the national deadlines for applying for Master’s degree programmes, which means the coming deadlines are as follows:

  • 15 October 2017 with a view to commencement of studies in January/February 2018.
  • 1 March 2018 with a view to commencement of studies in August/September 2018.
  • 15 October 2018 with a view to commencement of studies in January/February 2019.

Please note that not all degree programmes are open for commencement of studies in January/February. Master’s programmes with winter admission will be announced.

Application for transfer or change of study programme after the regular deadline  
For some programmes, but not all, the application deadline will be extended (2nd round admissions). Please note your application will only be processed if the programme is open for 2nd round admissions, even though it is technically possible to submit an application to all programmes. If not, you will receive a letter of rejection.

 

 

Reply to your application

Applications for transfer and study change are processed regularly.

However, applications are not processed until after the application deadlines due to the process of clarifying of the number of available slots on the study programme in question.

In addition, especially for study programmes with restricted admission, our reply regarding admission or rejection can only be sent out very late, for some programmes not until right before or even after commencement of studies.

You have 1 week to accept a possible admission offer through the application system.

Tuition fees

Non-EU/EEA/Swiss citizens without a permanent residence permit in Denmark are liable to pay tuition fees during their enrolment at Aarhus University.
