Deadlines for application
For the master's programme, we only have a September intake. Students seeking admission to the entire master's programme and students seeking admission to the autumn semester as a guest semester have the following deadlines:
- March 15th for students requiring a visa to Denmark.
- May 1st if not requiring a visa (primarily from the EU/EEA) or students from an institution which has an exchange agreement with Aalborg University.
Students applying for the spring semester as a guest semester:
- August 15th if requiring a visa
- October 1st if not requiring a visa (primarily from the EU/EEA) or students from an institution which has an exchange agreement with Aalborg University.
Find the appropriate application, fill it in, submit it electronically as well as print and mail it with the requested enclosures to the International Office. Please note, AAU has an application fee for full degree students from outside EU/EEA. The application fee will be refunded if you are admitted and start at the programme you have been admitted to. See details here.
Full-time students at this programme who are not nationals of an EU/EEA country will be charged tuition fee of DKK 50000 per term (2010 level). Non-EU/ EEA students with a permanent residence permit for Denmark are exempted from tuition fees.
Aalborg University does, however, grant a few tuition waivers and scholarships to non-EU/EEA students. For the September 2009 intake, 22 tuition waivers and scholarships were granted for the entire university.
Aalborg University has only a very limited number of scholarships available. The likelihood of obtaining a scholarship is far higher in other places - e.g. through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Ministry of Education in your home country.
An energy planning student successfully applied for an e8 scholarship, but note that this is limited to very good students from developing countries. Americans may try the Gudrun Gytel Fund.
