We are often asked by prospective students, “Do you count me as an international applicant?” Because applicants from outside the country go through the same admissions process as other international students, we do not categorize individual applicants in such a way. We have no quotas of any kind for admission, all applications are evaluated by the same criteria, and financial aid is equally available to all students regardless of citizenship.

When we refer to “international admissions,” we are generally referring to applicants who apply from schools outside Denmark. In general, if you are applying from a school abroad, you will follow the same procedures and timetables as candidates applying from schools located abroad.

English Language Proficiency

A strong knowledge of English is essential for successful study at BASW including the ability to understand and express thoughts quickly and clearly. Although you are not required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or other proficiency exams, you may submit your scores if you have done so.


We encourage interested international applicants to have an interview if possible. If an interviewer is not available sufficiently close to you to make an interview possible, the absence of an interview will not adversely affect your candidacy.
