Tuition fee, scholarships and living costs

Tuition fee
Citizens from non-EU/EEA/Swiss countries, including citizens from a British overseas territory, are required to pay tuition fee at higher education institutions in Denmark.


  • The tuition fee for 2019-20 academic year: 6,500 euro per semester
  • The tuition fee for 2020-21 academic year: 6,500 euro per semester


  • The tuition fee for 2019-20 academic year: 6,500 euro per semester
  • The tuition fee for 2020-21 academic year: 6,500 euro per semester

Tuition fee waiver

Non-EU/EEA/Swiss applicants with a permanent Danish residence permit or a preliminary Danish residence permit with a view to permanent residency will be exempt from paying tuition fee. Please make sure to include a copy of your residence permit and a scan of your residence card when applying.

Payment Deadline for New Students
New students must pay the first semester’s tuition fee 10 days after they have been offered a study place. It is not possible for us to process visa applications until we have received the tuition fee.


KADK is not able to offer any scholarships or other types of financial support.


While the UK is still a member of the EU, British citizens are considered EU citizens and therefore do not pay tuition fee. This information will be updated once the UK is no longer a member of the EU.

Work and living costs
The programmes at KADK are full-time programmes; however, many students have student jobs to support themselves financially. Non-EU students are allowed to work 20 hours a week and must pay particular attention to this rule in order not to have their residence permit revoked.

KADK does not offer or facilitate student jobs. You can find more information about the Danish job market on the Danish Government’s Study in Denmark website

Moving to Copenhagen

Once you have been accepted to a Master's at KADK, your next priority will be to find a place to live in Copenhagen and get yourself acquainted with other practicalities in regards to your transition to Copenhagen and Denmark.

Accomodation is especially relevant since KADK unfortunately is not able to offer or facilitate housing to our students.
