Credit students

If you are studying at another Danish department, but would like to take individual courses at the Department of Political Science, you should apply to become a credit student. Credit students are admitted to one or more subjects for one semester at a time.

If you are studying outside of Denmark or if you have already completed your studies, but would like to take a few additional subjects, you should apply to the Open University.

Overall priority is given to candidates from master’s programmes and only undergraduates from the University of Copenhagen are admitted to the bachelor’s programmes. For more information on the regulations, please consult the Student Advisory Service booklet Guidelines for Credit Students (Vejledning for meritstuderende), which you can download via the box on the right-hand side of this page.

How do you qualify for the credit students’ programme?

To be admitted as a credit student, you must fill in the application form for credit courses on this page. Further, you must obtain prior approval from your own department, stating that the credit transfer you have earned will be accredited to your study programme.

Deadlines for applications for the credit students’ programme are as follows: 1 June for the autumn semester and 1 December for the spring semester.
