EUROPEAN SCHOOL COPENHAGEN
How to apply

Normally our application deadline is 1 March but we have a few available spaces in the new S5 classes. Please contact the school if you’re interested in applying.

If you wish to apply for upper secondary at the European School Copenhagen, you must apply via optagelse.dk.

To start the application process, select ‘Søg ungdomsuddannelse eller 10. klasse’. You can log on with UNI-Login or Nem-ID or you can apply without a Nem-ID. Please see the attached step-by-step guide in English if you are applying without a UNI-Login or Nem-ID.

To be admitted to upper secondary, you must meet the general requirements and language criteria listed under the English and Danish language sections. Here you can also see a list of the documentation you must submit with your application. Please remember to write and submit a motivation explaining why you wish to attend the European School Copenhagen.

If you meet the criteria, you will be invited to a written test in the language of the section you have applied for (English or Danish), mathematics and the language you have chosen as your first foreign language.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
