Approved study abroad and internships outside the EU – the Danish “Udlandsstipendium”

(The following may also apply for exchanges inside EU with European institutions where a tuition fee applies.)

Especially when you want to join for an exchange outside the EU one of the  major problem for many students are the tuition fee to be paid. Especially Danish students realize how lucky they are as students in Denmark where Danish students aren’t meet with a claim for paying tuition fee at higher education programmes/institutions. In many countries, a semester easily is charged costs from DKK 30,000 and up. And text books and other study materials are even not included in this fee but paid separately.

Are you eligible for the Danish SU grant (the Danish State Grant) it has been possible for you to apply for a study abroad scholarship called “Udlandsstipendium” since 1. July 2008. You can apply for this scholarship for international exchanges with duration of minimum half year and even full-degree programmes abroad at Master/Graduate level.

The scholarship covers full or partial tuition fee for a duration of up to 2 years, and you can take your Danish SU with you. If only partial scholarship, e.g. if tuition fee is unreasonably high compared with a similar programme in Denmark, then you will have to supplement with your own finances to cover the difference (or other funding).

For further information on opportunities and application procedures, you can contact with your students counsellor who also can assist you with formalities related to applying for the “Udlandsstipendium”.
