CREDIT TRANSFER STUDENTS FROM ANOTHER DANISH UNIVERSITY

This category is only for students with an EU/EEA/Swiss citizenship, or a permanent residence permit in Denmark who take elective courses as a part of their full time studies at a Danish institution other than CBS, and who can present a letter of pre-approval of credit transfer from their home institution stating that the courses will be credit transferred to their current studies. Please note, that the pre-approval has to be an official document stating the name and course code of the course(s) that will be transferred and with stamp, signature and contact information of the authority signing.

*Students without EU/EEA/Swiss citizenship who do not have one of the residence permits listed below, but are enrolled in a full-time program at another Danish institution, can also apply in this category if they have obtained a pre-approval for the applied courses to be credit transferred to their program and a confirmation of the paid tuition fee for the program and semester that the courses are going to be a part of.

The following residence permits in Denmark (or another Nordic country: Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Greenland, the Faroe Islands) are accepted:

  • "Permanent opholdstilladelse" - permanent residence permit in Denmark
  • "Opholdstilladelse med mulighed for varigt ophold" - residence permit with a view to permanent residence in Denmark
  • "Opholdstilladelse jævnfør EU-opholdsbekendtgørelsen" - residence permit in Denmark according to the EU/EEA regulations
  • "Opholdstilladelse som medfølgende barn" - residence in Denmark as an accompaning child (the documentation must state that you are "medfølgende barn" - the text "medfølgende familie" is not sufficient)

If you need elective courses for other purposes (supplementary courses, etc.), please select the relevant category in the menu on your left and read more.

IS IT A REQUIREMENT THAT I HAND IN A PRE-APPROVAL FROM MY UNIVERSITY ANLONG WITH MY APPLICATON? 
You need to hand in your pre-approval before the semester starts, ie 1 September for the autumn semester and 1 February for the spring semester, otherwise you will be withdrawn from your courses without further notice.
If you have not yet received your preapproval when you upload your application to the CBS application portal, and therefore cannot upload the preapproval along with the application, you will receive an e-mail before the start of the semester with the information that it will now be possible to upload the pre-approval.
Preapprovals sent via e-mail will not be considered.

WILL I RECEIVE A DIPLOMA?
You can print a transcript yourself, no later than 3 months after your last exam, and if you need to have it verified, you can write to confirmations@cbs.dk, who can help with signing and stamp the transcript.

I WANT TO TAKE A CERTAIN COURSE IN ORDER TO FULFILL THE SPECIFIC ENTRE REQUIREMENTS FOR A CBS MASTER´S PROGRAM. WHAT CAN I DO?
If you are a bachelor student, you can choose your electives (i.e. courses that are included in your bachelor degree) so as they fulfill the specific entry requirements for a master's program.
