Copenhagen the capital of Denmark, is often called the Paris of the North. Denmark has a well developed modern welfare system. The country is experiencing a steady growing number of exchange students. The IT University of Copenhagen is offering state scholarships to exceptionally talented MSc applicants (full-degree students) from outside EU and EEA every year. Students from countries outside the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) are charged tuition fees at the IT University.
The IT University of Copenhagen is a Danish globally oriented, independent university. The IT University of Copenhagen was established in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1999. At that time, it was – in Danish – called “IT-højskolen”. In 2003, when a new Danish University Law was passed, the IT University was officially appointed a University, the twelfth and smallest university in Denmark, and therefore changed its name to the IT University of Copenhagen.
Note that students from countries within the EU/EEA, those on bilateral exchange programmes (e.g. Erasmus), US students with a Fulbright scholarship, and those who started studying in January 2006 or earlier are NOT charged tuition fees at the IT University.
To be eligible for the scholarship, you must be from a country outside the EU and EEA. You must be admitted to a full time MSc Programme at IT University of Copenhagen. Remember to apply for admission into the MSc programme before the announced deadline.
The scholarships will be offered to the applicants who achieve the best scores according to the criteria in the admission rules of the university.
