Readmission

Readmission into BSc Eng and BENG programmes

If previously enrolled students want to study at DTU again, they can apply for readmission.

Rules regarding readmission only applies, if a student applies for the same study degreee. All BSc Eng are considered as the same type of degree, and all BEng are considered as the same type of degree. If the student previously studied one type of programme and now wish to apply for a new type of programme, the student must apply for admission or change of study programme.

If applicants have themselves withdrawn from their study programme, they may be readmitted to the same study programme within the same type of degree (BSc, BEng or MSc) at the earliest five months after their enrolment was terminated.

Applicants who have been disenrolled from their study programme by DTU for study-related reasons or who are in violation of DTU’s rules at the time of application for readmission will need to apply for an exemption. Such an application is only to be submitted once the applicant has been notified by DTU that he or she must apply for an exemption. An exemption must be applied for regardless of whether the student is applying for a place on a different study programme than the one in which the student was previously enrolled. If the application for an exemption is accepted, it will be assessed whether the applicant can be readmitted. If the application for an exemption cannot be accepted, the student’s application for readmission will be rejected.

If applicants apply for readmission and have already completed a higher education programme, they will be covered by the Danish Act on Barring of Second Degrees (Lov om begrænsning af dobbeltuddannelse).

If the last passed course on the student’s DTU study programme dates back more than five years prior to readmission, courses on the study programme cannot - as a general rule - be transferred to the new study programme to which the student has been admitted. However, an exemption may be granted from this rule in special cases following an application from the student. The relevant head of studies will assess whether an exemption may be granted from the five-year limitation period. The assessment of the exemption will be processed in connection with the assessment of the application for readmission. Courses, that dates back more than five years, will only be transferred to the applicants new study programme, is the applicant wishes to do so.
