On Thursday 28 July, CBS will send admission letters to everyone who has been accepted to a bachelor programme at CBS.

Response to your application

You will receive the answer to your application on Thursday 28 July.

CBS will send all admission letters as encrypted emails from midnight. We send out the admission letters starting at midnight, which means it will take a few hours before all applicants have received their answer.

​In the admission letter from CBS, you will be informed about which programme you have been accepted to with study start 1 September 2022.

One offer

You will only receive one offer for a study place, even if you have applied for several programmes. The distribution of study places is done collectively for all educations in Denmark, and therefore you only receive an admission letter from the institution where you are offered a study place.

Have you not been offered a study place?

If you are not offered a study place, you will receive an answer from the Coordinated Admission (KOT) letting you know that you did not get in. 

Because CBS has far more applicants than study places, there are no available places and no waiting lists.

If you have not been offered a study place, we recommend you read the article ”You did not get in. What now?".

Before you accept

Before you accept your study place, consider whether you feel ready to start studying this year or whether you might be better off taking a(nother) sabbatical year.

Experience from previous years have shown that students that have thought this through will make an easier transition into university life.

So before you accept your study place, please take a minute to read about what is worth considering.

Read more about the considerations you should make here at cbs.dk > Study start > Before you accept your study place

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 1 August at 23.59. 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, you must remember to send documentation for fulfilling the admission requirements no later than 15 September 2022 to:

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

Access to CBS’ digital platforms

To access CBS’ digital platforms, you must activate your user profile. Read more about how to do that in your admission letter or on Study start

Get ready for study start

We have gathered all the information you need to get ready for study start at studystart.cbs.dk. Here you among other things will find:

  • An overview of the things you need to do before study start.
  • Access to the online study start course How to Uni. By taking the course, you will get prepared for your new life as a CBS student.
  • The program for your introduction week.
  • Information about the study start test. 


All bachelor's programmes start with an introduction week on 22 - 26 August, which is the week before the semester begins.

We recommend that you prioritise participating throughout in the entire intro week. Here you get an introduction to your new programme and you meet your fellow students for the first time. Our experience shows that students who participate in the introduction week get off to a better study start, and which is very helpful for your studies at CBS.

Read more about the introduction week and find the programme for your study programme


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 from the same programme as yours. Your mentor will help you to get off to a good start on your programme and in your student life.

On opendays.cbs.dk  you can see videos with some of the mentors and hear their advice about study start (on the page presenting the programme you got into). You can also send them an e-mail if you have any questions about study start.

Educational grants (SU)

You are enrolled at CBS with study start 1 September. You are therefore eligible for education grants (SU) from 1 September. You are not eligible for SU or public transport discount (ungdomskort) during the introductory activities in August.

You can apply for SU from 1 August.- but no earlier than 48 hours after you have accepted your programme offer.  

You apply for SU at MinSU on www.su.dk
