3. Apply with Nem-ID

8. Before you apply to CBS
Before you apply to university, you should really take some time to think about whether you want to start university now. It is particularly important this year as COVID-19 has made a lot of people apply to university for want of other possibilities.

If you have planned to spend a year or two travelling or working, applying to university is not necessarily the best plan B. Before you apply, please take a minute to read about what you have to consider.
