Information about the exchange programme at the Department of Economics
If your own university holds an exchange agreement either with the University of Copenhagen or with the Department of Economics directly - then you can apply as an exchange student. You are then excempted from paying tuition fee
As an exchange student at the Department of Economics, you have access to all our bachelor and master courses.
Almost all our courses require high levels of competencies in economic theory, mathematics and econometrics. When choosing courses as an exchange student, you must read the prerequisites of each course and consider carefully whether you meet the requirements or not.
Please be honest to yourself - the courses are more than just some interesting titles. You need to read the course descriptions thoroughly and take the stated lists of prerequisites very seriously. You are not qualified for a 3rd year undergraduate course or a master's level course with a background in eg. "Econ 101" only.
For you to get the most out of your studies, we recommend that you have completed at least 2 years of full-time studies at your home university.
