If you are from the Nordic countries (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland) you are free to live, study, and work in Denmark. You do not need a visa, residence permit or work permit.
For more information, please visit the Danish Government’s Study in Denmark website:
Citizens from EU/EEA countries or Switzerland who will stay in Denmark for more than three months must apply for a registration certificate. You can travel to Denmark and apply for the registration certificate when you arrive in Denmark. It is a good idea to do this as soon as possible after you arrive, as it will make obtaining the Danish health insurance card (sundhedskort) and Danish social security number (CPR) much easier.
For the application form and more details on applying for the registration certificate, see the Regional State Administration’s (Statsforvaltning) website here:
Note: Your letter of admission can be used as documentation of your enrolment at KADK.
You must apply for the registration certificate within 3 months of arriving in Denmark.
If you are not a Nordic, Swiss, or EU/EEA citizen, you will need a residence permit before entering Denmark.
After you have been accepted at KADK, we will send you further details and a link to the online application form (ST1), with part 2 of the form completed by us. You should then complete the rest of the application form and submit the application to the nearest Danish embassy or consulate in your home country.
The application process can take up to three months. If you have been accepted at KADK and have not received the ST1 application from from us, please contact us immediately.
