We primarily welcome students from partner institutions
The health programmes at UCN welcome students enrolled in our many partner institutions around the world. You will often be able to study with us through EU's mobility programme Erasmus+ or the Nordic mobility programme Nordplus. Talk to the international office at your home institution to find out, if UCN is a partner.
Not from a partner institution?
Contact us about your possibilities.
Your home institution and UCN will carefully evaluate, if UCN's exchange programme matches the academic scope and curriculum of the programme you are enrolled in at home. This evaluation also helps us ensure that each course or activity you complete is eligible for credit at your home institution.
Find your programme below for our recommendations regarding completed semesters.
We recommend that you have completed at least the first year of a midwifery programme, including a period at a delivery ward.
- Occupational therapy
We recommend that you have completed at least the first three semesters of an occupational therapy programme.
We recommend that you have completed at least the first three semesters of a physiotherapy programme.

You should expect to communicate in English, but no certificate or documentation is required.
In many situations, you may also be able to communicate in a Nordic language. Danish can naturally be used by those who understand and speak the language.
Learning agreementYour home institution will provide you with the correct learning agreement if one is needed.What is a learning agreement?
A learning agreement is a plan that details what courses or research/training/teaching activities you intend to achieve during your exchange at UCN. Your learning agreement must be approved and signed by both your home institution and yourself.
Academic transcript of recordsIncluding study activities.
Motivational letterA one-page letter explaining why you are interested in the specific activity and programme, etc.
MRSA-testYou will need a negative MRSA screening test. You do not need to upload the test as part of your application, but will need to present it at your clinical placement. You must take the test no more than two weeks before you arrive in Denmark.Why must I be tested for MRSA?
During your clinical placement, you will get in touch with patients and health care professionals. MRSA can spread and cause illness in people with weakened immune systems.
→ Help us avoid the spreading of MRSA in hospitals (Information from the Danish Infection Control Team - Region North, Denmark).
Exchange students do not have to pay tuition because it is typically an exchange of one or more students between partner universities and/or funded by EU's mobility programme Erasmus+ or the Nordic mobility programme Nordplus.
