Second degree rule

Repeal of the second degree rule

The government and the parties to the financial law agreement have agreed to abolish the restriction on the second degree (the education ceiling). According to the agreement, this must take effect on July 1, 2020, which means from the summer intake 2020.

The bill that has been submitted for hearing, aims to repeal the second degree rule and to restore the legal status in force before 1 February 2017. The master rule, which was in effect until February 1, 2017, allowed applicants who had completed a master's programme to be admitted to a new programme only in case of vacant study places.

We expect the ’master rule’ to replace the second degree rule, but we are still waiting for the bill to be finally approved. You can follow the status on the web page of Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education.
