Final Registration

In week 3 (January 18th to 22nd) you will receive an e-mail from us about the final registration for your course. It is very important that you respond to this e-mail in order to finalize your registration.

Before the Danish Language Course starts all exchange students will have their course registrations checked. The University of Copenhagen has approved a minimum and maximum credit range of 22.5 to 35 ECTS per semester. If your course registrations exceed 35 ECTS in the spring semester, you will be asked to withdraw from a course in order to proceed with registration in the Semester Danish Language Course.

After the final registration and shortly before the beginning of the course you will receive an e-mail with information about your classes - such as timetable, classroom, name of teacher, etc.
