Study Visa

As a foreign national, you can be granted a residence permit in order to study in Denmark.

If you are a Nordic citizen, you are free to reside, study and work in Denmark. If you are an EU/EEA citizen or Swiss citizen seeking residence in Denmark based on the EU rules on freedom of movement, you may be subject to special regulations.

There are three main categories of study which can warrant a residence permit:

Higher educational programmes

Basic and youth study programmes

Folk high schools
