Application form (3rd - 21st August 2020)

If you would like to participate in the 2020 Danish Summer Language Course at the University of Copenhagen, you can apply by filling out and sending in the application form, which you can find on the right-hand side of this page.

The Danish Summer Language Course is offered as part of the Cultural Agreement Programme under the Ministry of Higher Education and Science, a programme which supports international cooperation and mobility. The courses at the University of Copenhagen do not include board and lodging, but applicants are given a grant to cover these expenses. Read more about this under practical information.

Applicants must be students in one of the 41 countries covered by the Programme and must also meet a number of criteria. Applicants from Israel and Russia should apply for the course directly at the Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education.

All obligatory fields on the application form must be filled in. If they are not filled in, we will not be able to process your application. Incomplete applications will not be taken into consideration.

The application form is in English and can be filled in either in Danish or English.

Please note that when you fill in the application form, there can be no in-process interruptions. Therefore, remember to have all your appendices ready before you start filling in the form. We also recommend that you read the guide, which you can find in the text box on the right, before you start.

The course, run by CIP, is open to a maximum of 15 students. If there are more than 15 qualified applicants, there will be a waiting list.

Please note: you may choose only one course provider as your first choice. Applicants who choose several providers as first choice will not be offered a scholarship.

The deadline for submitting applications is March 1st 2020 at 12 midnight (23.59).

Required appendices
If you are starting an Erasmus+ stay in Denmark immediately following the Danish Summer Language Course, then please attach the relevant documentation in the form of a letter from your educational institution or the Danish educational institution, clearly stating the dates and type of Erasmus stay.

You should also include a personal motivation letter of half a page written in Danish, describing how you feel you will benefit from attending a Danish Summer Language Course in Denmark.

Optional appendices
You can attach a recommendation from a lecturer, who teaches you Danish in the country where you study now. Please note that applicants recommended by a Danish lecturer in their own country have high priority when processing applications for the course.

Language requirements
Please note that participation on CIP’s Summer Language Course requires a Danish proficiency level of B2 or higher on the CEFR scale. CIP will send out a questionnaire regarding Danish language competences to all applicants. The questionnaire answers will also form part of the assessment for a place on the course.
