Admission requirements

Before you apply, please check with the international office at your home university to determine your eligibility. 

Exchange students must be nominated by their home institution before submitting an application. Final decisions on admission will be made upon review of application materials by DTU.

Admission through the Erasmus+ programme

Please talk to the Erasmus coordinator at your home university, if an agreement exists. And please note that DTU does not accept free movers (students who do not apply within an exchange agreement). In order to qualify you must:

  • be enrolled in a formal programme of study at higher education level at one of our partner universities
  • have completed at least the first year of your university studies

Admission on bilateral exchange agreements

This is only possible if your home university has a bilateral agreement with DTU. To enrol as a bilateral student you must:

  • be enrolled in a degree programme at a university when applying
  • be a graduate or advanced undergraduate student. The minimum requirement is that you have completed the first two years of university studies at your home university. Exceptions from this rule are subject to individual assessment.
