Autumn 2021

Here you can read what we expect for the autumn semester 2021


We expect that COVID-19 will still be an issue in autumn 2021, but hopefully with fewer restrictions.

We know how important it is that new students have the opportunity to get to know their fellow students and CBS from the very beginning of their studies. And that this is a lot easier face to face. That is why we are doing everything we can to ensure that as many activities as possible will be on campus.

As much as possible on campus

We are planning the autumn semester on an expectation – and a great hope – that there will no longer be a requirement for distance this autumn.

Consequently, classes and exams will be conducted as normal. That is, both classes and exams will be on campus. The same goes for activities and events - including study start activities.

Of course, this plan requires that there still are no restrictions on gatherings and no requirements for distance. If the authorities reintroduce the 1 metre distancing requirement, we will have to adjust our plan and go back to online classes and exams.

Requirements for a negative test

The way things are now, it will be a requirement that you show a negative corona test if you want access to campus. The test has to be less than 72 hours old.

Entry into Denmark

If you are an international student, you should be aware of the rules for entry into Denmark.

You will receive an email with a confirmation that you are enrolled at CBS. You will need to bring the email and be ready to show it to the border control when entering Denmark.

We will send the email 28 July with the subject line: Letter for border police.

The email confirms:

  • that CBS is open and not closed down due to COVID-19
  • that you are a student at Copenhagen Business School
  • that your physical attendance is required from 23 August
  • that we strongly recommend that our students are present in Denmark from 1 August to settle in

Stay updated!

The situation is constantly changing, and we are following the reports from the authorities closely. We will update this page as soon as we know more about how study start 2021 will look like and how the teaching for the autumn semester will be.
