ITU will conduct oral exams as video conference exams
The IT University of Copenhagen has decided to temporarily shut down campus. Planned re-exams with an oral component are to be held as video conference exam, if all the participants can agree to this. Please see ITU-guidelines on video conference exams (in Danish)
Submission re-exams (C- and D-exams, projects and theses) will continue as planned.
Written re-exams on premises (A-exams) will be held in April.
How are you appointed for the body of external examiners?
The body of external examiners are appointed anew every fourth year, where at least twenty five percent of the external examiners are to be replaced (eksamensbekendtgørelsen nr.1062 af 30-06-2016, §58 stk.3). This offers the chance for new potential candidates to be recommended for a body of external examiners.
According to The Examination Order (§57) a person appointed to a body of external examiners must have the following qualifications:
A relevant research-based education at master’s (candidatus) level;
Comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge of the scientific disciplines of the field, including theory and methodologies;
Specific competencies within one or more academis subareas included in the programme or the specific course; and
Up-to-date knowledge of the application of the programme or the specific course, including knowledge of the employer’s situation and needs.
The Study Programmes at the IT University of Copenhagen are affiliated with two different bodies of external examiners, which consist of external examiners appointed by the Danish Agency for Higher Education. These two bodies of external examiners represent two different fields of academic research:
Body of External Examiners in Computer Science (D)
President: Professor Kim Skak Larsen (email@example.com

External examiners with a non-EU/EØS citizenship
If your residence and work permit is based on a salaried job with a specific employer, please read the rules on sideline employment below. The rules (effective from June 10th 2018)
enable foreign nationals that have been granted a residence permit as a researcher (under the Researcher Scheme or the Researcher Track of the Fast-track Scheme) as guest researcher or as a PhD student to take up sideline employment without submitting a specific application for sideline employment. It is a precondition that the sideline employment is naturally related to the job that forms the basis of the foreign nationals residence and work permit.
Researchers, including researchers under the Fast-track Scheme, guest researchers and PhD students are – under the new rules – allowed to take up unlimited sideline employment.
Researchers with a residence permit under the Pay Limit Scheme are not subject to the new rules on sideline employment. These researchers continue to need to apply for a specific permit for sideline employment.
