Danish Government Scholarships for the academic year 2009-2010
In accordance with the Cultural Agreement Programme between Denmark and
the Republic of Hungary, the following scholarships are available for students from Hungary:

  • 34 months for undergraduates and postgraduates minimum duration: 2 months.
  • 4 scholarships for participation in summer courses in Danish language of 3 weeks’ duration.

The scholarships are available for advanced students, graduates and specialists in order to enable them to study or carry out research at a Danish university or a similar institution of higher education in Denmark.

The scholarships are not intended for part-time studies or open
education programmes, nor are they granted for elementary studies of
the Danish language.

The scholarships are not intended for a full course of study. Normally, an academic degree or a diploma cannot be obtained during the tenure of the scholarship period.

The applicants must be nominated by their own authorities.

The applicants must be approved by CIRIUS. It is a condition that an
appropriate study programme can be arranged. It is therefore essential
that the applicant in his/her application gives a detailed description
of the intended project of studies/research in Denmark.

Danish is the usual language of instruction at institutions of
higher education in Denmark, but more and more institutions offer
regular courses in English or another foreign language or have special arrangements for non-Danish students.

Further information on courses in other languages can be obtained from the institutions.

The scholarship includes free tuition and a monthly allowance of DKK
5,000. Scholarship periods lasting more than 3 months include health
insurance. As a general rule, the scholarship is tax free in Denmark.

contact the local tax authorities for an individual assessment.
