Information about the exchange programme at the Department of Economics (requirements, courses, course registration and application)



For you to get the most out of your studies at the University of Copenhagen, we recommend that you have completed at least 2 years of full-time studies at your home university.  

Almost all our courses require high levels of competencies in economic theory, mathematics and econometrics.  You are not qualified for a 3rd year undergraduate course or a master's level course with a background in eg. "Econ 101" only.

Choosing courses

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.

Course Catalogue
