Within the next few days, you will hear if you have been accepted to a graduate programme at CBS. Like in previous years, CBS have had to reject many applicants.

If you have been rejected, we recommend that you read the article "Rejected?"

Reply to your application

The answer will be uploaded to your application and you will receive an email when it is uploaded. CBS Admissions uploads responses to applications one programme at a time and you will therefore not necessarily receive an answer for all of your applications at the same time, and your friends could receive an answer before you do.

As soon as we have uploaded all the answers, we will post the information under Graduate Admission – Step 3

If you can see on cbs.dk under Graduate Admission – Step 3, that all answers have been uploaded and you have not received an answer, you are welcome to contact us, but not before this. 

Admitted – what's next?

If you have been admitted to a programme at CBS, the first thing you should do is to accept your place no later than 7 days after you have been offered a place. You do this in your application. You will not receive a confirmation, but you will see that your application status has changed from:

  • ”Final offered admission” to ”Final admitted” or
  • ”Conditional enrolment, Offered conditional enrollment” to ”Conditional enrollment, Conditional enrolment”.

Please make note of whether your admission is full or conditional. If you are conditionally accepted, for instance because you still need to pass the last courses in your bachelor, then you must meet these requirements before 1 September 2017. Read the conditions in the letter and make sure you understand them as well as when and how to meet them. You can read more at cbs.dk under Graduate Admission – Step 3.

Access to IT platforms

If you are new to CBS, you will gain access to your CBS email address and CBS’ IT platforms, such as your schedule and my.cbs.dk our student intranet, at the beginning of July. If you have a Danish civil registration number (CPR) you will receive this information in your e-box, otherwise you will receive a physical letter. 

You will be able to see your timetable at the beginning of August.

Orientation activities

Most programmes at CBS offer orientation activities. They start at 21 August at the earliest, but for many programmes the start date is later.  Note that orientation activities vary among programmes. At the beginning of July, you can read more about your specific orientation activities at my.cbs.dk

We recommend that you participate in the orientation activities, even though it is not mandatory. It gives you a good academic and social introduction to your new programme.

Education grants (SU)

If you are a Danish citizen, you can apply for SU for your master studies. You are enrolled in a new programme, whether you are continuing your bachelor degree’s natural progression or are coming from another university. You can apply for SU starting 19 June.

Read more about SU at my.cbs.dk or at www.su.dk

Processing time can be up to 4 weeks and your SU will not be disbursed until the middle of July or beginning of August.

If you are not a Danish citizen, other rules apply to you. Read more about SU rules for non-Danish citizens at my.cbs.dk or at su.dk

Please note that processing time may take up to 4 months.

Once again, welcome to CBS – we hope you will have two great and educational years with us!
