Bachelor's degree students wishing to study Danish language and literature can also apply if they have studied the Danish language at a university for two years. Bachelor's degree students are also required to take on a course load of 30 ECTS per semester.
In order to encourage the establishment and development of direct contacts and agreements between institutions in Denmark and Russia, priority will be given to applicants who are affiliated with such projects.

Applicants must apply through, and be nominated by, their own national authorities. Please contact the Ministry of General and Professional Education of the Russian Federation or the Russian Academy of Sciences for further information.
Candidates nominated by their national authority must be approved by the Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education and the desired host institution in Denmark. The Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education screens all applications before forwarding them on to the requested institutions for assessment and final approval.
