Admissions - EU applicants

Applying for a bachelor's degree programme at VIA is easy. The application process for EU/EEA/Swiss citizens is described in 4 steps below. 

If you are a non-EU citizen, go here for information on the application process.

Applicants from the EU/EEA and Switzerland do not pay tuition fees. More information on tuition fees here.

 

Step-by-step guide

  • Go to the official Danish admissions portal optagelse.dk to apply. If you are applying through an agent read more here.

    You can sign in using NemID if you have a Danish CPR number or log in using an email address if you do not have one. On the portal, you will find complete instructions on how to fill in the application form, upload attachments, etc. or you can watch this video guide.

    Once you have applied in the Danish admissions portal, you will be able to follow the progress of your application in VIA's own portal here, as well as receive and send messages from/to VIA about your application – watch this video on how to follow you application.

    You will receive a notification via email, if you have new messages from VIA in the admissions portal. Your official acceptance letter will also be sent through VIA's admissions portal. It is your responsibility as an applicant to keep yourself informed on your application through the portal.

  • When applying without a Danish CPR number/NemID, VIA needs your signature to start processing your application. This means that you have to approve, print and send in a signature page for each of the programmes you are applying to.

    The signature page is a PDF document generated by the official Danish admissions portal optagelse.dk with a unique application ID, which VIA uses to identify your application. We must have received the signature page(s) before 15 March 12:00. It is not possible to upload signature pages to the admissions portal, but you can print the page, sign it, scan it and e-mail it to: apply@via.dk. Send one e-mail per signature page/programme. In the subject field of the e-mail, please indicate which programme the e-mail concerns.

  • When application deadline is reached all applications will be assessed.

    Some study programmes have admission tests. See the programme website for more information on admission tests.

    Study places will be assigned to applicants who meet the admission requirements. If there are more applicants than study places, places will be awarded based og grades and other qualifications. At some programmes, you will receive a preliminary acceptance letter in late May/early June, if your application meets the admission requirements. If you do not fulfil the admission requirements, you can apply for admission with special permission.

    Some programmes have study start in both the fall semester and in spring  - read more about allocation of study start here. If you have already completed some parts of a similar study programme in your home country, you have to apply for credit transfer.

    If you hold a Master’s degree when applying, read about the Master’s degree rule, or learn more about readmission and reenrolment if you have already  been admitted to the study programme once before, but not completed it.

  • The final decision on your application (acceptance/conditional acceptance/standby place/rejection) will be sent 28 July. In case there are any available study places left, they will be announced at our Available Places page.
