2023 application round
It is no longer possible to apply for graduate admission in 2023.
If you have applied for admission in Group 1, you can expect to receive the answer to your application on 10 June 2023.
If you have applied in Group 2 (Non-EU/EEA citizens), you can expect to receive the answer to your application on 15 March 2023.
Find out which group you belong to
You apply for CBS graduate programmes via the Danish universities' shared Application Portal. It is here that you upload documentation, receive instructions from your caseworker, find the answer to your application and confirm your place of study, if you are offered one.
Prepare in advance - it takes time to fill out an application!
We recommend you start working on your application well in advance of the application deadline. We estimate it takes at least 40 minutes to fill out an application if you have your documentation ready beforehand.
Make sure you're receiving e-mails from the Application Portal
It's a good idea to mark firstname.lastname@example.org as a "safe sender" in your email client, otherwise notifications sent from the Application Portal might be blocked as junk email.
The Application Portal can be accessed via NemID, with an existing student login at a Danish university, or by creating a new user account.
For information on how to log in to the system, please see the documents listed below.
- How to access the Application Portal

- How to log in by creating a new user account: Guide: Self-registered user (pdf)
- How to log in by means of NemID: Guide: Login med NemID (pdf - available only in Danish)
Once you have submitted an application, a confirmation letter will be uploaded to your account in the Application Portal, under the "Messages" tab. Check the letter and note your Application ID number. You will need it in order to communicate with CBS Admissions regarding your application.
You will receive a notification email every time there is an update to your application.
