Part-time Programmes and vacant place scheme

Part-time programmes at DTU comprise:

  • Part-time BEng and MSc programmes
    Qualifying study programmes on a part-time basis at BSc level and MSc level. The admission requirement is a completed higher education programme + two years of relevant work experience after graduation.
  • Vacant place scheme
    Under this scheme, vacant places are offered on the majority of DTU’s ordinary courses to students as places for incoming students who register for courses as single subject students.

    The range of courses offered under the vacant place scheme is shown in the course catalogue, see: http://www.dtu.dk/Uddannelse/Efteruddannelse/Kurser/Tompladsordningen

    The following special admission requirements apply to students under the vacant place scheme

    Admission requirements
    Students wishing to take courses under the vacant place scheme must comply with the general admission requirements for the engineering programmes, see:
    http://www.dtu.dk/Uddannelse/Ansoegning-og-optagelse/Optagelse-bachelor-diplomingenioer/Adgangskrav

    Applicants with a foreign diploma do not, however, need to pass a Danish language test to be admitted.
    Instead, students must themselves assess whether they have the necessary Danish/English language skills to participate in the courses. If a student constitutes an obstacle to the teaching on a course due to a lack of language skills, the lecturer may expel the student from the course.

    Note that foreign students need a residence permit to apply for admission to a part-time programme if they stay in Denmark for more than 90 days. For further information, please refer to https://www.nyidanmark.dk.

Students under the vacant place scheme can register for all ordinary DTU courses where the following is stated under ‘course type’ in the course description: “The course is offered under the vacant place scheme”, or ordinary DTU courses where the lecturer has granted written permission to the student within the registration deadline. Permission may not, however, be granted for, for example, language courses or BEng programme internships.

In any drawing of lots for a place on courses with a limited number of participants, full-time students who have registered within the registration deadline are allocated a place before students on a part-time programme.

Please note that the number of participants may also vary depending on whether the student is an EU citizen.

Exams
Students on part-time programmes may only participate in exams if they have registered and paid the fee for the course and/or exam in the semester immediately preceding the exam. Registration for a course is also an exam registration. Part-time students who fail an exam have the same rights to take ordinary re-exams and make-up exams as full-time students. In addition to the above, students enrolled on a part-time programme must also comply with the exam rules for ordinary students (see ‘Exam’ under ‘Structure and Rules’).

Re-exams
Students who have not passed the first exam attempt on a Master’s programme or another part-time programme must have the opportunity to register for the second exam attempt in the same exam period or in immediate continuation thereof. Any third exam attempt must be taken as soon as possible, and, where possible, no later than on the next date of the exam in question.

Withdrawal
Students on the Flexible Master's programme and the Flexible Diploma programme can themselves register for and withdraw from courses via the Study Planner.

Students on DTU’s other part-time programmes must contact the part-time programme on which they are enrolled to withdraw from courses. Students on the vacant place scheme must contact efteruddannelse@dtu.dk
