19 Jan New Danish education recap bill passed will benefit to the foreign students
I hope you’ve had a relaxing holiday period, and a great start to the new year!
We’ve received a couple of questions regarding the new education cap bill, passed by the Danish government recently. I’d like to briefly address this, so you have the correct information regarding application.
The education cap bill only affects students who have a completed full-time Danish education. Part-time, or distance learning courses are not included in this. This means that students with a completed education from their home country, are still eligible to apply for all of our educations. I.e. one of our AP programmes, and/or Top-up programmes. It also means that you may only complete one Danish full-time education programme at each education level (AP, full Bachelor, Top-up, Master, PHd).
· You may complete e.g. an AP programme, and then apply for a full bachelor programme afterwards.
· An applicant has a Bachelor from their home country (not Denmark), and can then take a Top-up programme at BAAA (or potentially start from AP level).
· An applicant has taken a bachelor in their home country, and then completes a Danish Master programme. On completion of the Master programme, they would no longer be eligible to apply to any of our programmes, as their completed Danish education would be at a higher level than any of those we provide.
I hope this clears things up for you? And as you can read, it shouldn’t affect too many applicants.
If you would like further clarification, or have any specific cases you’d like to check on, you are very welcome to write to our guidance counsellor firstname.lastname@example.org, who is our on-site expert in these matters.
Thanks, and I wish you a successful applications to study in Denmark.
