Studying abroad

A thorough description of the possibilities for studying abroad and the application deadlines can be found at DTU Inside under ‘Study Abroad’ or at DTU’s website Studyabroad.dtu.dk and Beyondborders.dtu.dk

To be eligible for an exchange place, students must meet the following criteria:

  • Students enrolled in a BSc or BEng programme must have completed at least two years of study (approximately 120, minimum 110, ECTS credits) before the commencement of the exchange stay unless the student is attending summer school abroad.
  • Students must be enrolled in an ordinary full-time DTU programme at the time of application and during the entire exchange stay. They must also have credit availability for transferring a minimum of 20 ECTS credits from their stay abroad.

Students are expected to be full-time students (30 ECTS credits per semester). Students must have space in their curriculum to obtain pre-approval and credit transfer of a minimum of 20 ECTS points from their study abroad. Students who do not comply with this requirement may be requested to repay any grants received from DTU. All pre-approved courses that have been passed must be transferred to the study programme.

Students must always comply with other study activity requirements and deadlines laid down by DTU, the host university, and other relevant bodies. Information on DTU's study activity requirements and deadlines is available on DTU Inside under 'Study rules'/'Study Activity Requirements and Deadlines'.

Students are expected to pass and transfer at least 20 ECTS credits per semester (however, not students attending summer school abroad) and comply with other study activity requirements made by DTU, the host university, and other relevant bodies. Students who do not comply with this requirement may be requested to repay any grants received from DTU.

Students must apply for a pre-approved credit transfer for planned programme elements from another institution of higher education in Denmark or abroad before the course/stay is commenced, unless it involves language courses and/or summer school stays. For further information, see the chapter about Credit transfers under the study programme.
