Tuition Fees
Full-time students at this programme who are not nationals of an EU/EEA country will be charged tuition fee of DKK 50000 per term (2010 level). Non-EU/ EEA students with a permanent residence permit for Denmark are exempted from tuition fees.

Aalborg University does, however, grant a few tuition waivers and scholarships to non-EU/EEA students. For the September 2009 intake, 22 tuition waivers and scholarships were granted for the entire university.

As mentioned above, Aalborg University has only a very limited number of tuition waivers and scholarships available. Students cannot apply for these but will be nominated by Aalborg University when applying. The likelihood of obtaining a scholarship is far higher in other places - e.g. through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Ministry of Education in the student's home country.

Americans may try the Gudrun Gytel Fund.
