Moving abroad? Here is some useful information about what to expect in terms of educational system, finances, accommodation and many more.

The Danish Educational System

Dania offers a variety of academy educational programmes as part-time studies, complete with varying courses at our eight campuses.

An AP Degree is a higher educational programme that gives you qualifications well suited for use in the business world, for instance qualifications in management, administration, financial management, marketing management and communication.


Upon completion of an AP Degree, you will have the opportunity to progress to a Top-up degree.

  • What is an AP Degree?

    An Academy Profession (AP) Degree Programme is a type of higher education with a duration of two years that combines theoretical studies with a practice-oriented approach 

    The AP Degree Programmes are offered at Academies of Professional Higher Education in Denmark. The Academies have fewer students than universities since they offer a limited number of study programmes, facilitating close contact between students and companies in the region. The AP Degree Programmes make use of the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), a common European standard, where 60 Credits correspond to one year of full-time studies at higher-education level. The Marketing Management, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Auto-Technology & IT-Technology Programmes are two-year, full-time educations that correspond to 120 ECTS Credits.
    Career Prospects The AP Degree Programmes are designed in close collaboration with representatives from relevant sectors of business and industry to ensure that the graduates get the qualifications and competencies needed by the industry. The educations include guest lecturers from private businesses, company visits and a 3 months' internship in a Danish or foreign company. The close contact with business life gives the students an excellent starting point for finding a job after graduation.
    Further studies An AP Degree is comparable to the first two years of a 3-year Bachelor Degree. Because of this, AP Degree Programmes also qualify
    graduates for further studies at universities or business schools in Denmark or abroad. Dania Academy has agreements with a number of Danish and European universities about accepting our graduates for a top-up Bachelor Degree. 
    Read more about the Academy's partner universities.
    Quality assurance The AP Degree Programmes are approved by the Danish Ministry of Education.
  • What is a top-up programme?

    The Bachelor's top-up takes 1½ years and is for students who have already completed an AP degree programme or similar.

    By completing an AP degree programme and the top-up programme, you will obtain a Bachelor's degree. You will be awarded 90 ECTS points for a BA top-up programme.
