Welcome to CBS!


Welcome to all new bachelor students at CBS! Here is what you need to know right now...


On Friday 26 July, CBS will send a response to everyone who has been admitted to a bachelor programme at CBS.

Response to your application

You will receive the response to your application:

  • in your e-boks if you have applied with a Danish civil registration number, CPR, around 12:00 noon.
  • by e-mail if you have not applied with a Danish civil registration number, CPR, around 12:00 noon.

The response from CBS will say which study programme you have been accepted to with start of study 1 September 2019. You will only receive one offer for a study place. Even if you have applied for several programmes, you will only receive an answer from the institution that offers you a place.

Along with the admission letter you will also receive a welcome brochure with important information about starting your studies at CBS. We recommend that you read it all, so you do not miss out on important information.

Have you not been offered a study place?

As in previous years, CBS has had to reject many applicants, since we have far more applicants than study places. If you have not been offered a study place, we recommend you read the articale ”You did not get in. What next?"

Remember to accept the offer!

If you are one of the lucky applicants who have been accepted to CBS, you must remember to accept the offer for a study place no later than 31 July at 12:00 noon. If you fail to accept the offer before the deadline, you will lose your study place.

To accept the offer you must:

  • Click on the link in your admission letter
  • Log on with the username and password stated in your admission letter
  • Follow the instructions

Conditionally accepted

If you have been conditionally accepted, e.g. because you have taken a supplementary math course during the summer, you must remember to send documentation for having passed the course no later than 15 September 2019 to:

If you fail to send the documentation on time, you will lose your study place.

You can also get easy access to CBS’ other IT platforms, which you will use as a student, including:

  • your timetable

All programmes at CBS start with introductory activities which we recommend that you participate in. Here you will get an introduction to your study programme and CBS, and you will meet your fellow students for the first time. The intro activities will give you the best basis for getting off to a good start in your student life.

Read more about you introductory activities and when they start on my.cbs.dk > My Studies > Study Start > Introductory activities (you will need to log on with your user profile)


When the intro activities are over and the teaching starts, students in most programmes will be assigned a mentor who is typically a 2nd or 3rd student. Your mentor will help you to get off to a good start on your programme and in your student life.

On studentlife.cbs.dk you can see videos with some of the mentors and hear their advice about study start. You can also send them an e-mail if you have any questions about study start.

First day of studies

Your first day on your new programme is 2 September 2019. The day is called Responsibility Day. Here all new bachelor students meet in K.B. Hallen where CBS President nikolaj Malchow-Møller will give the official welcome speech.
