Top 5 Scholarships in Denmark for International Students

Top 5 Scholarships in Denmark

Higher education in Denmark is free for several categories of international students. This applies if you are from the EU/EEA and Switzerland, if you are participating in an exchange programme for your studies in Denmark, and also if you belong to the group of students as explained below.

You do not pay for tuition if you at the time of application have the following: a). Permanent residence permit; b). Temporary residence permit that can be upgraded to a permanent one; or c). Residence permit as the accompanying child of a non-EU/EEA parent holding a residence permit based on employment.

All other students must pay tuition fees. Annual tuition fees for full-degree students range between Euro 6,000-16,000 (DKK 45,000-120,000). To ease this burden and attract excellent non-EU/EEA students, the Danish Government and Danish Institutions provide a number of scholarships for international students for study in Denmark.

    Danish higher education institutions receive a limited number of government scholarships each year to fund highly qualified full-degree students from non-EU/EEA countries and Switzerland.

Examples of Danish Government Scholarships offered by Danish Institutions are as follows:
