Supporting documents

The documents mentioned below are the documents that may be relevant in connection with your online application. Please note that the system only accepts PDF documents.

  • A certified copy of your transcript of grades from your home university
  • A document to prove your English language proficiency, e.g. a test result or a letter from your university. You should be at B2 level or better within the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) or a similar level within another language test framework. Native speakers of English are not required to document their language proficiency. Students from universities where English is the teaching language are also exempt from documenting their language proficiency.
  • Your Learning Agreement, if you apply to become an Erasmus student (only for students from European universities). You are kindly required to fill in the standard information about the receiving institution (DTU) that you can find here. Please note that DTU will not sign the learning agreements until all applications have been processed. Accordingly, please leave the learning agreement unsigned by DTU when you apply. You should also be aware that a signed learning agreement is no guarantee that you will be offered to take the desired courses, as courses may be cancelled or oversubscribed, or you may not have the necessary prerequisites.
