Note!

If you are enrolled in a programme that previously has had rules regarding when you must have completed your studies, you should be aware that you are still bound by these rules. Consequently, other time limits might apply for you than those listed above. This particularly applies to students enrolled in an engineering programme, in a science programme, or students enrolled in the medical programme. Find out from your programme regulations whether this is the case for you.

 

If you have problems living up to the time limit rules

You can apply for dispensation from the rules if there are extraordinary conditions, or if you are an elite athlete, president for an organisation under Danish Youth Council, or an entrepreneur. If you have problems living up to the time limit rules, you might contact an adviser in your programme for advice.
