Credit Students

Credit studies are an option for students who are enrolled at other departments at the University of Copenhagen or other institution of higher education in Denmark. In order to be accepted as a credit student you must obtain a pre-approval from the department or institution you are enrolled at. A pre-approval document that the courses you attend at Department of Anthropology can be transferred to the study you are enrolled at.

Admission

You apply for admission to courses as a credit student at the University of Copenhagen by completing one of the two forms below. You must use the first form if you are an active student at The University of Copenhagen and have a login to KUnet, and the other form you need to use if you come from another Danish University.

Application for admission as a credit student from University of Copenhagen

Application for admission as a credit student from another Danish university

(The forms are only active when the application round opens).

You must submit one form per faculty at The University of Copenhagen you are applying for, so if you only want to apply for courses at Faculty of Social Sciences, you only need to submit one form.

For courses in the fall semester the application period is 1 May - 1 June and for courses in the spring semester the application period is 1 November - 1 December.

Pre-approval

In addition, you must have a pre-approval from your own educational institution. The pre-approval is documentation that the courses you follow here can be transferred to the degree programme on which you are enrolled.

If you are unable to obtain pre-approval before the application deadline, you have the opportunity to submit it later. Use the relevant form below when you want to submit your pre-approval.

Forwarding of pre-approval - Credit transfer student (UCPH student)

Forwarding of pre-approval - Credit transfer student (from another Danish University)

Forwarding of other documentation - Credit transfer student

Courses

At Department of Anthropology you can choose to study single courses or entire semesters.

Every semester, a range of courses are held in English. Some of them are repeated every year, other thematic courses are new and given only once. The list for such courses is updated in November for the upcoming spring semester and in early May for the upcoming fall semester. You can find descriptions of the courses available in the course catalogue through the following links:
