Information on admission in general and the admission portal

You apply for admission via the internet portal www.optagelse.dk.

The portal opens each year on February 1. 
Application deadline is always March 15 at 1200 (CET).

All required documents that are necessary for processing your application, must be uploaded before deadline. KADK will dismiss your application if you have signed and accepted it after deadline.

On optagelse.dk you choose the area ‘Apply for higher education in English’. The name of the education/bachelor programme in Crafts is: ‘Professional Bachelor of Crafts in Glass and Ceramics – location ‘Nexø’.

You upload documents by attaching them to your application. You attach them by placing a check mark, and you must remember to check that all documents are attached before finishing your application. 
This means that it is your responsibility to ensure that you have done this, so the Admission team at KADK have access to your documents when you have finished your application.

The portal www.optagelse.dk has issued guides, and we recommend that you study their guides carefully and in good time.

You can start your application procedure on optagelse.dk early and in good time, and we highly recommend that you do so.
You simply create an application on optagelse.dk and upload documents (e.g. exam papers) that enables KADK to determine whether you fulfill the formal requirements or not.
We recommend that you create your application as early as possible on optagelse.dk in order to deal with all formal requirements. Every year we have applicants who have spent all their time on the home assignment and have ended up without an actually applying before deadline.

In these situations KADK cannot help: the applicant cannot proceed. If you apply early, we might be able to help you, for instance if documents are missing, or you need to supplement your qualifying exam.
If in doubt we will mail you up to one week before deadline. After this we cannot offer to help you, as we are busy processing applications.

You must remember to check your mailbox daily during the application procedures. After deadline we will contact you, if something is missing, and you will be given 24 hours, e.g. to upload a document. Please remember to check your spam filter as well. Every year we meet applicants, who have failed to do this and missed a deadline.

Your home assignment is not to be uploaded to the application portal. Please study our instructions in the home assignment brief.

Tips from KADK to you

TIPS from KADK to you. We recommend,

  • That you apply on optagelse.dk in good time. This way we might be able to help and guide you, if anything is missing in your application, and you can spend your time on the assignment.
  • That you check your receipt from optagelse.dk thoroughly. Each year we meet applicants who have failed to fill in a check mark, have forgotten important enclosures or something else, which means that KADK was compelled to dismiss their application.
  • That you check your mailbox on a daily basis during the application procedure.
