Summer University

International Summer University

The Summer University DTU Programme offers courses with instruction entirely in English language for BSc and MSc students of engineering or related natural science programmes. To browse the selection of courses, please have a look here. For course dates, see the academic calendar.

International students from DTU partner universities are invited to come to DTU for a 1-3 months period during which they will follow one or more of the offered Summer University DTU courses. Students who are accepted for the Summer University programme will be able to sign up for courses from 1 to 15 May.

If you are currently enrolled as a full degree student at one of DTU’s partner universities (see complete list here), and your home university is willing to nominate you under an existing exchange agreement, Summer University DTU courses are free of charge. You will, however, have to pay an accommodation fee. Each student should be prepared to cover his/her own living expenses.


If you are a student from a partner university, and you have been nominated by your home university, please apply here. You should apply before 1 March, 2016. DTU requires you to send hard copy documents in order to apply. These will include at least a print of the application form and your transcript of records from your home university.

Students from non-partner universities should apply to DTU’s Open University programme.   


Students from partner universities who are accepted for the Summer University programme, will receive information on how to apply for accommodation in their acceptance e-mail.
