Students who apply through a Danish university, will not be enrolled at a Danish university and will not be able to obtain an admission letter from Denmark. All admission documents will be issued from UCAS.

Q: Will I receive SU when studying at SDC in China?
A: The SDC Master's programmes are all approved for SU (the Danish students' Grants and Loans Scheme). To find out whether you are eligible for SU visit the website of the Danish Agency for Institutions and Educational Grants.

Q: Do I have to pay tuition at SDC?
Please read the following carefully to see if you must pay tuition to attend the programme. Tuition is 40,000 RMB a year.

Danish citizens
Students must pay tuition if they are not enrolled at a Danish university at the time of application. However, they may be eligible to receive the Danish “Udlandsstipendium” to cover tuition fee. Most Danish citizens will be eligible. For more information, please go to SU-styrelsen.

Danish citizens do NOT have to pay tuition if they are enrolled at a Danish University at the time of application (either in a Bachelor programme, a full Danish Master's programme or a Danish supplementary course in connection to a Danish Bachelor or Danish professional bachelor programme).

Non-EU citizens
The tuition fee for all MSc programmes at SDC is 40,000 RMB a year.

EU/EØS citizens
Students from EU/EØS countries have to pay tuition if they are not enrolled as a student at a Danish university at the time of application (either in a Bachelor programme, a full Danish Master's programme or supplementary courses). If the student is equated with Danish citizens, who are required to pay tuition, they may be eligible to receive the Danish Udlandsstipendium (scholarship for studying abroad) to cover tuition.
