Re-enrolment

Re-enrolment is for those who have passed the first academic year of the degree programme they are applying for. 

When you apply for re-enrolment, the five-month rule applies. This rule means that you must have been withdrawn from the degree programme at least five months before the programme you are applying for starts.

The prerequisites for being re-enrolled are:

  • That you have passed what corresponds to the entire first academic year of the programme in which you wish to be re-enrolled 
  • That you meet the current admission requirements for the programme
  • That you have been withdrawn from the programme at least five months before the programme you are applying for starts. 
  • That there are empty places in the programme in which you wish to be re-enrolled
  • That you have improved your possibilities of completing the programme (if you were withdrawn from the programme by the university)

Are you unsure whether you have passed the first academic year? 

Perhaps you are unsure whether what you have passed corresponds to the first academic year. If you were previously enrolled in the degree programme at AU, the structure of the programme might have changed, and the first academic year might now consist of different courses. If you have been enrolled in the programme at another university in Denmark, the first academic year at AU might be structured differently and consist of different courses than you have passed at your previous university.

If you are unsure whether you can get a credit transfer for the entire first academic year, we recommend that you apply for both re-enrolment and for ordinary admission to the new programme. It is not a problem to apply for both things at the same time.

Special rules apply when you apply for a degree programme on which you have previously been enrolled

The rules that apply to you depend on how you were withdrawn from the degree programme.

Did you withdraw from the degree programme yourself?

If you withdrew from the degree programme yourself, It is important that you apply by the deadlines for re-admission.

If you de-registered from the degree programme yourself but were due to be withdrawn by the university, you must apply in the same way as if the university had withdrawn you – see below. 

How to apply 

To apply for re-enrolment, please find the type of programme called “Change of programme/transfer – Bachelor’s degree programmes/Master’s degree programmes” in the application systemThen find the programme in which you wish to be re-enrolled.

When you apply, you must upload the following: 

  • An academic transcript with all examination attempts (transcript RA052U) (if you are not a former AU student) 
  • A withdrawal letter or withdrawal confirmation from your university (if you are not a former AU  student) 
  • Academic regulations or course descriptions of all courses (if you are not a former AU student) 
  • An exam certificate for your upper-secondary school exam (if you are applying for a Bachelor’s programme)
  • Documentation that you meet language requirements, for example, an upper-secondary school certificate (if you are applying for a Master’s programme)
  • Documentation that you have completed a Bachelor’s degree (if you are applying for a Master’s programme and did not do your Bachelor’s programme at AU)

Did the university withdraw you from the degree programme?

Aarhus University must assess whether you have significantly improved possibilities of completing the programme, if you were withdrawn from your programme by the university. This applies regardless of which university you were enrolled at.

Examples of reasons for being withdrawn from a degree programme are:

  • Having no remaining examination attempts
  • Inactivity
  • Exceeding the maximum degree completion time

You will only be able to start the programme if the circumstances that prevented you from completing the programme before have changed to such an extent that it will now be possible to complete the programme. 

Aarhus University’s assessment of whether you have significantly improved study possibilities includes both academic and health considerations.

How to apply

To apply for re-enrolment, please find the type of programme called “Change of programme/transfer – Bachelor’s degree programmes/Master’s degree programmes” in the application system. Then find the programme in which you wish to be re-enrolled.

When you apply for re-enrolled you must upload this form, in which you must describe how your possibilities to complete the programme have improved.

You must describe the factors that mean you are now in a position to complete the programme. This description must include: 

  • The reason you did not complete the programme before
  • Why you believe you are now in a position to complete the programme, for example, improvements in your health or your personal life.
  • The documentation you have to support this
