Financial support and scholarships

Quota 3 is for applicants who fulfill the following 4 criteria:

  • You are applying for an English-language bachelor degree programme
  • You do not have a Danish upper secondary school exam
  • You are not an EU/EEA/Swiss citizen and 
  • You need a study visa in order to be able to study in Denmark.

A quota 3 application should consist of the following:

  • Documentation for a qualifying upper secondary exam and fulfilment of the specific admission requirements
  • Motivational essay
  • Documentation for relevant work experience
  • Documentation for other relevant activities such as relevant volunteer work (preferably international)

In the overall assessment of applicants, we look at the following factors:

  • Motivation 
    We place great emphasis on your motivation for doing the study programme. It is therefore important that you attach a well-thought-out personal statement. In the personal statement, you should talk about why you wish to be admitted to the study programme you are applying for, what special qualifications you have, and what you want to use the programme for. In addition, you should tell us how your experience and qualifications match the study programme to which you are applying to be admitted.
  • Grades and level in selected subjects 
    Your abilities in mathematics and natural science are essential when you want to train as an engineer. We therefore attach considerable importance to your results in the following subjects: mathematics, physics and chemistry. For study programmes in which they are relevant, we will also assess your abilities in biology, computer science and social science.
  • Work experience 
    If you have undertaken study-related work which may have contributed positively to enhancing your professional or personal qualifications, it will be included in the assessment.
  • Other education 
    If, in addition to your qualifying education, you have completed an academically relevant study programme or parts of an academically relevant study programme, it will be included in the assessment.
  • Other activities 
    If you have completed activities or obtained experience which may have a positive influence on your suitability for the study programme, you should remember to draw attention to this in your personal statement. This may, for example, be the following activities: university stay with relevant academic content, voluntary work, civic duties or other service, stays abroad or language skills. If you are in the process of doing activities which improve your qualifications, such activities may be included in the overall assessment of your qualifications even if they have not been completed when the application deadline for quota 2 expires. You just need to describe your activities in your application and then send the documentation for the activities before the application deadline for quota 1 expires.
