Re-admission is for those who have previously been enrolled on the degree programme they wish to apply for but have not passed the entire first academic year.
If you would like to re-apply for a degree programme on which you have previously been enrolled but for which you have not passed the entire first academic year, you must apply for re-admission.
If you are admitted to the degree programme, AU will assess whether you can get a credit transfer for some of the courses you previously completed.
When you re-apply for a programme, the five-month rule applies. This rule means that you must have been deregistered from the programme for at least five months before the programme you are applying for starts.
Special rules apply when you apply for a degree programme on which you have previously been enrolle.
The rules that apply to you depend on how you were withdrawn from the degree programme
If you withdrew from the degree programme yourself, you must apply for admission again in the same way you applied for the programme the first time.
If you withdrew from the degree programme yourself but were due to be de-registered by the university, you must apply in the same way as if the university had de-registered you – see below.
How to apply
If you are applying to be re-admitted to a Bachelor’s degree programme, you must apply through www.optagelse.dk. If you are applying for a Master’s degree programme, you must apply through the application system DANS. Please note that there are different application deadlines.

Have you applied for a Bachelor’s degree programme?
If you have applied to be re-admitted to a Bachelor’s degree programme, you will receive a response no later than 28 July.
Once we have processed your application, you will receive a decision in your e-Boks. If we accept your application for re-admission, this does not mean you are guaranteed a student place. It only means that you have the opportunity to be assessed on an equal footing with the other people applying for the degree programme.
If we reject your application for re-admission, it means that you cannot be considered for re-admission to the degree programme.
Have you applied for a Master’s degree programme?
If you have applied to be re-admitted to a Master’s degree programme, you will receive a response on 10 June if you have applied for a degree programme that starts in August/September and on 20 December if you have applied for a degree programme that starts in January/February.
Remember to check your application
It is important that you check your application regularly in order to see if we have requested further documentation. You should receive an email to notify you that there is new information in your application. Unfortunately, our emails sometimes go into the applicant’s spam folder and are overlooked. Or applicants sometimes provide an email address that they do not check regularly.
