How to Apply

The application process for coming here as an Erasmus, exchange or guest student depends on whether your home university has an agreement with the University of Copenhagen.

If your university has an agreement:

You can apply for admission as an exchange student (often under the Erasmus programme) in the Department of Media, Cognition and Communication if your university/department has an exchange agreement with either our department or the University of Copenhagen.

You apply for admission as an exchange student through the international coordinator at your own university, and you follow your home institution's application deadlines for international exchanges.

If your university does not have an agreement:

If your university/department does not have either a particular or network arrangement with the Department of Media, Cognition and Communication or the University of Copenhagen, you can apply for admission as an individual guest student by submitting an application to the International Office at the University of Copenhagen.

For further information about this option and its application process, please contact the International Office directly.
