EU, Nordic, and Baltic Citizens
If you are a citizen of an EU or Nordic country tuition is free. Also for foreigners with a permanent residence permit the tuition is free of charge.
Tuition is free of charge and you may borrow books at the academy.
Due to regulations from the Danish Ministry of Education, there is a tuition fee for foreigners from a non-EU country.
If we accept your application, after having seen your diplomas, you need a residence permit for Denmark.
Please notice that you must pay tuition fee for first semester before you can apply for a student’s residence permit. Tuition fee for the following semesters must subsequently be paid in advance as well.

Student Counsil - DSR
DSR is the official body for the co-operation between students on the various programmes and the management, and is an important factor in creating a good study environment. DSR represents the students in relation to the academy. Each class selects a representative for the student council.
As well, each programme has a student council with representatives from each class.
