Choosing courses in advance


When applying to become an exchange student it is often required of you to make a study plan and choose the courses you would like to study, if you are admitted.

If you have to make your study plan before the courses for the next semester is published, you have to choose based on courses offered regularly (se the bottom of this page) for the purpose of your application. Once you the new list of courses is advertised, you can adapt your choices to the available courses. 


Choosing courses


Students who enter the Faculty of Social Sciences through an Erasmus or a Nordplus exchange agreement held by the Department of Anthropology must earn a total of 20 ECTS per semester at the Department. Likewise, incoming Erasmus and Nordplus students who study at more than one Department at the Faculty of Social Sciences must earn a total of 30 ECTS credits per semester at the Faculty. Any exemptions to above rules are at the sole discretion of the international coordinator at the Department of Anthropology (Quentin Gausset) that holds the exchange agreement through which the student enrolled at the Faculty.

If you wish to take courses at other departments at the University of Copenhagen, you should find the guideline on how to become an exchange student at the relevant department. Here you can find all the departments at the University of Copenhagen.
