  • Please complete and return your application form and all required documentation to the postal address on the form.
  • The admission office will first assess the applications which are received by the deadline and eligible candidates will be offered a space.  Applications which are received after the deadline will be added to a waiting list – on a first come-first served basis - and if there are still spaces available eligible candidates will be offered a space. 
  • Application deadline:  Autumn semester: 2 May same year; Spring semester: 15 November previous year.
  • Acceptance letters will be sent out 6 weeks after the application deadline.
  • Study start: Autumn semester starts in September and Spring Semester starts  in February. 

The university reserves the right to cancel a programme or module after the application deadline has expired - e.g. in case of insufficient applications, shortage of teaching resources or other special circumstances - and to adjust tuition fees in accordance with statutory regulations. The programme/module content & teaching schedules are subject to change.   



Entry Requirements

  • Graduate diploma or Bachelor degree or equivalent
  • At least 2 years of relevant professional experience
  • Documented English language proficiency corresponding to A-level (gymnasium)


Tuition fee:

As a part-time student you (or your employer) are required to pay a fee to cover your tuition and administration costs.  The university receives a value-added-grant (taxametertilskud) from the state to cover a proportion of these costs.  University tuition fees are exempt from VAT.   

The standard tuition fee for LAICS is kr. 44.000 per module - payable in advance, one module at a time, in one installment. 

The payment deadline will be 3 weeks after you receive your acceptance letter. You are entitled to a full refund of your tuition fee if you cancel (in writing) before 1 September - for start during the autumn semester - and before 1 February for start during spring semester. The tuition fee is not reimbursed if you do not complete the module.  It will not be possible to receive a refund after the module has started.

Additional Expenses:

Participants should expect to incur additional expenses for seminar accommodation at approx. kr. 20.000 per module (modules 1, 2 and 3) and kr. 8.000 (module 4).  Invoices for seminar accommodation costs are payable at the end of each seminar. Travel costs will vary depending on where you live.

Financing your LAICS Master:

Continuing education is an investment for both you and your organization. 

LAICS participants tend to be partly or fully sponsored through their employers. But there are alternative ways to finance your education – depending on your individual situation. We therefore suggest that you seek advice from an accountant or tax authorities in order to ensure that you select the most suitable model to finance your LAICS Master.
