Apply as a former student
If you have previously been a student at ITU or another university, special rules apply to being admitted. You can read about them here and see what documentation you need for your application.
When you have found your required information, follow the step-by-step guide for either European applicants or Non-European applicants.
Mandatory credit transfer assessment
If you have previously passed university courses (not from a vocational academy or professional/university college) without completing the degree, you must inform us in order to make a mandatory start credit transfer assessment. You need to enclose both transcript of records and course descriptions for the passed courses. If we offer you admission and we are able to make a credit transfer, you will be notified. You cannot decline the credit transfer.
If you have passed less than the first year examinations (60 ECTS) in the same programme, which you have withdrawn from and you have not failed to meet a study activity requirement, you must apply anew through the application portal Optagelse.dk.
If you have passed less than the first-year examinations (60 ECTS) in the same programme and you have been administratively withdrawn by the university, you have to apply anew through the application portal on Optagelse.dk. You must enclose an application for exemption and apply by 15 March at 12 noon CET.
We can approve your application for exemption if we assess that your possibilities to complete the programme have improved or the programme has changed significantly. Please note that an exemption does not guarantee you admission, but only that your application for admission is included in the final assessment.
If you have passed courses corresponding to the examinations of the first year (60 ECTS) or more under the valid academic regulations for the specific programme in the same programme you must apply for re-enrolment. The deadline for applying for re-enrolment is 15 March at 12 noon CET.
Please note, it is not possible to re-enrol in a dimensioned programme (BSc in Digital Design and Interactive Technologies). You can read more about how to apply for re-enrolment on ITU Student.
