SU (State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme)

Students should note the differences between DTU’s study-related rules and the legislation governing the State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme. Therefore, exemptions from DTU’s study-related rules will not take account of SU issues. Likewise, SU-related decisions will not impact DTU’s study-related rules.

That means that students who are granted an exemption from DTU’s study-related rules do not necessarily comply with the terms of the Danish Act on the State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme for continuing to receive SU. Therefore, students may risk losing their SU despite any decisions made by DTU.

Rules on SU can be found on the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science website: www.su.dk. All rules governing SU can be found in the Danish Act on the State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme (SU-loven) and the Ministerial Order on the Danish State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme (SU-bekendtgørelsen), (see ‘Love og bekendtgørelser’). These rules constitute the basis for decisions made by the SU office at DTU.

Further information about SU can be found at DTU Inside under ‘State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme (SU)’.
