You cannot apply for exchange at your master's programme, during your bachelor's programme, if your are planning on taking a break from your studies after completing your bachelor's programme and before starting your master's programme.

Due to different academic calendars, the semesters at AU and your host university may overlap, when you go on exchange.
Active participation/class attendance at AU
If the semesters are only overlapping for a few weeks, you can try to reach out to your teachers and explain the situation. Often you will be able to make an agreement with them about how active participation/class attendance is handled in the few weeks, when you cannot participate in classes at AU.
In case your semester abroad overlaps with the ordinary exam period at AU, and you need to take a re-exam in a subject from a previous semester at AU, you may apply for an exemption from the requirement that registrering for re-examination (in February/August) requires that you have been registered as having used an examination attempt at the ordinary exam. You apply for an exemption via mystudies.au.dk.
Maximum period of study
As a general rule, your exchange semester may not prolong your studies at AU. It is therefore important that you plan in advance if you have overlapping semesters to ensure that you can still complete your studies within your maximum period of study.
If you are in a situation, where the overlapping semesters are for such a long period that it is impossible to finish your study programme within your maximum period of study, you must immediately apply for an exemption to your board of studies, in which you suggest an alternative study plan which will prolong you period of study as little as possible. You apply for an exemption via mystudies.au.dk.
