Application deadline postponed

The Ministry of Higher Education and Science has decided to postpone the deadline for applications for admission to higher education via quota 2 by one week. The new deadline is Sunday, March 22, 2020 at 12 noon.

The deadline for applications for admission to higher education via quota 2 has been postponed, because Denmark is facing a unique situation with the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus infection.

Applicants are urged to apply for admission as soon as possible, but given the exceptional situation, the deadline is being postponed to give more time to the approximately 50,000 applicants who apply for higher education every year via quota 2.

The original deadline was Sunday, March 15. The new deadline for submitting your application is:

Sunday, March 22, 2020 at 12 noon

Quota 2 is for applicants wishing to apply for a course of higher education and who are assessed on other criteria than their grade point average from upper secondary school education.

Applications are to be made digitally through the application portal:
