Tuition fee and scholarships

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.


The Withdrawal Agreement negotiated by EU and the UK ensures that during the transition period that ends on 31 December 2020 British citizens maintain their rights as EU citizens and therefore do not pay tuition fee. British students commencing at KADK in September 2020 will maintain these rights even after 31 December 2020 provided they reside legally in Denmark. Please keep yourself updated on the website of the Ministry of Immigration and Integration.

Moving to Denmark

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.
