Work experience You have to describe your job and which tasks you performed which are relevant in relation to the programme you are studying in or have applied for. This can be documented by a letter from your employer stating: period employed, number of hours per week and tasks performed.In addition to this, you can also attach a CV in which you explain/describe your tasks more detailed. An internship, which is a part of a study programme, does not count as work experience.
Motivation letter The motivation letter can be compared to a job application. It serves to show us, why we should consider you for a scholarship. You may include the following topics in the letter:

1)   Why did you choose this particular programme

2)   Why did you want to study in Denmark

3)   Why are you a talented student

4)   What are your future career plans

The letter should be no more than one A4 page and remember that it is not a CV. You do not necessarily have to include everything, but just the things that may convince us that you should be granted a scholarship
