On Wednesday 28 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 answer to your application on 28 July.

CBS will send all answers as encrypted emails at around 12:00 noon

​In the answer from CBS, you will be informed about which programme you have been admitted to with start of study 1 September 2021.

One offer for a study place

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 a 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 recieve an answer from the Coordinated Admission (KOT) letting you know that you did not get in. 

Because CBS has far more apllicants than study places, there are no available places.  If you have not been offered a study place, we recommend you read the article ”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 2 August 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 2021 to:

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

Before you accept

Before you accept a study place, you should take some time to think about whether you want to start university now or if you will benefit more from taking a(nother) year off. 

In our experience, the students who navigate study start with the greatest ease and grow to enjoy their programme have considered a number of potential issues beforehand:

Access to CBS’ IT platforms

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

Check out my.cbs.dk

My.cbs.dk is your student intranet. You will be able to log on to my.cbs.dk 48 hours after you have accepted your study place.

On my.cbs.dk, you can find information about your programme and student life at CBS.

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

  • your timetable
  • your student mail
  • the Online Student Service
  • Canvas, your e-learning platform, where you can communicate with your professors and fellow students. 

Go to my.cbs.dk 


All bachelor's programmes start with an introductory week on 23-27 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 get off to a better study start, and this can be of great importance for the further course of the education.

Read more about the introductory 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. 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.

SU - 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

SU for international students

If you are a foreign citizen, you must meet certain conditions and follow a special application process to receive SU.
