SU

Non-Danish citizens

Non-Danish citizens enrolled on a degree programme that gives entitlement to SU can apply to be granted the same status as Danish citizens, and thus approval for SU.

Read more about the conditions you have to meet if you are a non-Danish citizen.

How do I apply for SU if I am a non-Danish citizen?

You must apply via minSU at www.su.dk.

To access minSU you will need a NemID login. If you don’t already have a NemID login you can order one at www.su.dk.

You must also complete the application for equal status for foreign citizens applying for equal status with Danish citizens. You can access the application for equal status by clicking on the receipt page you get when you have applied for SU in minSU. You can also access the application for equal status with Danish citizens under the section “Application for equal status (foreign citizens)” in minSU.
All applications must be completed and send through minSU.

NB:

The application for equal status must be completed no later than 21 days after your application via minSU. Remember to attach the requisite documentation (the documentation you must attach is stated in the online application). 

NB:

Your application cannot be processed until you have correctly registered your personal identification (CPR) number in the study administration system. You can do this here: http://studerende.au.dk/it-support/aendring-af-cpr-nummer/ 

New degree programme = new application

Please be aware that if you have been granted equal status pursuant to EU law and later apply for SU for a new degree programme, then you must once again complete an application via minSU, using the form ‘Non-Danish Citizens’.

If you have been granted equal status pursuant to the Danish regulations and later have to apply for SU for a new degree programme, then you must once again complete a new application via minSU. However, you do not need to complete the special form again unless you have been living outside Denmark for a continuous period of over two years.
