The University of Copenhagen welcomes more than 1500 exchange students annually from our global network of partners. On this page, you can find information about:

  • How to nominate your students for exchange
  • The application procedure for students

If you have any questions regarding nomination, please contact the International Education office:


The application deadline for the autumn 2024 semester was 1 May. It is no longer possible to nominate students.

If you have any questions regarding nomination, please contact International Education:


Once we have processed the nominations, we will invite the students to create their own login for Mobility Online. Below is a summary of the process, but students can find more information about the application procedure on our website for exchange students here:

Application deadline: 1 May

The students must log in to Mobility Online and submit their applications by 1 May (or preferably before). Students can save their application and access it later by logging in again.

Once students have submitted their applications, we will review them and contact them if we have any questions.

Application results: Early May

We will send the application results to the students in early May, shortly after the application deadline. It is important that students submit their applications by the deadline (and preferably before), so that we can review them as soon as possible.

Course selection: Mid May

Please note that students do NOT choose their courses/subjects in their application. Once accepted, we will invite the students to choose the courses they want to take. Due to internal course registration deadlines at the faculties, it can take 8–12 weeks before the student's course choices are reviewed and confirmed.

Any questions?

If you or the students have any questions about the application process, please contact us at
