Scholarships for Non-EU students

Are you looking to enrich your studies with a semester abroad in Denmark? The deadline for applying is 1. November 2016. 

It is now possible for highly qualified students, who are not from EU/EAA countries or Switzerland, to apply for a scholarship. This will cover tuition and contribute to living expenses while studying at UCL. The scholarship covers the tuition fee for one semester (4 months), and additionally you will receive approximately 6000 DKK each month to contribute to your living expenses.

Depending on your nationality, you will have to pay Danish tax. We will inform you of this if you are selected for a scholarship.

You can only apply for the scholarship to study at the Department of Nursing.
