Higher education in Denmark is usually provided free of charge for all EU/EEA students and for students who are participating in an exchange program.

Exempted from payment of tuition fees are also:

students with a permanent residence permit (danish: "Permanent opholdstilladelse")
students with a temporary residence permit with the possibility of achieving a permanent residence permit (danish: "Midlertidig opholdstilladelse mmf varigt ophold").

All other students have to pay a tuition fee.
Annual tuition fees for full-time degree students range from 6,000 to 16,000 Euro.


Scholarships for students from outside the EU/EEA for studies at Academies of Professional Higher Education and University Colleges are administered by the individual institutions.
The scholarships can be given as full or partial tuition fee waivers and/or grants towards covering your living costs. However, as the scholarships are administered by the individual institution, you should enquire about the details at the institution you are interested in studying at. Denmark warmly welcomes highly qualified and motivated students from all over the world. A number of scholarships are therefore offered each year by the Danish Ministry of Education to fund students from countries outside the European Union/ European Economic Area. The scholarships can be awarded for a full degree program or for part of a degree program at undergraduate level.

In order to be eligible to apply for a scholarship you have to be:

A citizen of a country outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA).
Permanently resident in a non-EU/EEA country.
Studying in Denmark outside any established exchange program or another kind of agreement, which waives your tuition fee.

If you would like to apply for a scholarship, we would strongly recommend you do the following:

Contact the institution which offers the specific study program you are interested in. The institution will then provide you with the application form. The institution can also inform you about entry requirements, course descriptions, deadlines and student services.
Apply for a residence permit. Read the instructions below.


You only need to bear for your living expenses, such as accommodation, food, transport and health insurance. The cost of living in Denmark is approx. Euro 650 per month according to the official standards, but unofficially an Indian, studying in Denmark would not spend more than 350 Euro / month on an average. It is difficult to say exactly how much money a student in Denmark needs per month. The cost of living varies from city to city. Generally students can live on less money in smaller cities than in large cities. And, of course, the amount of money you will need greatly depends on how economically you live.

Average monthly expenses for rent and utilities

Room in a student hall of residence: € 200
Room in a shared flat: € 245
Flat by yourself: € 315
