Application to SDU

You will have to apply for an exchange place via our online application system (click the apply button to the right).

Please take note of the following points when applying:

  • Prioritize the places you wish to apply for
  • Set up a realistic and relevant study plan for each priority. You do not have to apply for pre-approval from the Study Board, before knowing which exchange place you get, but you should know which courses you need to substitute. This is to make sure that the exchange place is relevant to you. 
  • Submit the application within the deadline.

SDU International will seek to award you the highest possible priority on your list when allocating places. Find more information on how we prioritize applications at this subpage.
