Copenhagen Business Academy, Denmark


Copenhagen, the capital and centre of Denmark with over 1.7 inhabitants, probably reminds everybody of the typical landmarks: the mermaid, the Tivoli, Tuborg, the beach, the harbour, Carlsberg beer, etc.  The "green" city shows by the fact that more Copenhageners travel by bike than by car - a very pleasant experience in a European capital. There is much more to experience:

  • Nature and an excellent study option in Denmark,
  • The large private Niels Brock Business College with around 25,000 students
  • The campus is located in the downtown area approx. 10 minutes by train from the main station
  • Exchange students are studying with locals
  • Fixed curriculum
  • Good student mentoring with buddy system for exchange students

Application for an ERASMUS Scholarship

Application Process

We have an ERASMUS partnership with the CBA and a certain number of exchange places per semester. You can apply for these places.

The ERASMUS application procedure is divided into two steps: 

Step 1: Application to the EBC University

You apply to us for a place at university and for the ERASMUS scholarship. Please register at the International Office and hand in the following documents:

  • Letter of motivation in English (one page maximum); in the last paragraph of your cover letter, include up to two alternative ERASMUS partners in whom you would be interested, should we have to cancel your application for the first time.
  • Performance record of the EBC University (via the virtual campus)

The best applications will be selected from all applicants of the EBC University, it counts academic achievements, language skills and the quality of your motivation letter, in which you show that you have dealt with your desired university.

We will inform the successful students by email and ask them to explicitly accept their place. If you accept the place, we will nominate you at the partner university and only then will you apply with the regular application documents for the university, see step 2.

If you have received a rejection, you will automatically be placed in the procedure for moving up to the alternative universities of your choice or we will endeavour to offer you an alternative. We will then send you an offer by email. Once you have accepted the offer, we will nominate you with the partner and only then will you apply to this university with the appropriate documents (see step 2 below).

Step 2: Application to the Copenhagen Business Academy

After the EBC University has officially nominated you at the partner university, apply there. The application procedure differs from university to university. You will find out what you need to do shortly after your nomination from the host university. As a rule, you will receive a confirmation, but please note that the host university reserves the right to decide on your admission.

Tuition fees
We have an ERASMUS partnership with this university. You can apply for an ERASMUS place (Attention - the number of ERASMUS places is limited).

For the participation in the ERASMUS program, an administration fee of 750,-€ is due. In this case, no further tuition fees will be charged at the ERASMUS university in which the student is enrolled.

Students who receive an ERASMUS grant can combine it with AuslandsBAföG. Each Studentenwerk processes applications for a country or region; the Studentenwerk Schleswig Holstein is responsible for Denmark.

Cost of living
On average, you will have to expect about 900 € for the monthly cost of living (including accommodation). Please note that you may have travel costs the further away you live from the university or how much time you have to allow for travel to and from the university. A slightly more expensive room in a more central location could then be cheaper than one outside.

It is also important to note that especially at the beginning of your stay, higher costs may arise (e.g. for the rent deposit, the ticket, etc.).


Learning Agreement
Along with your application, you submit a Learning Agreement (LA) on which you enter courses or modules amounting to at least 20 ECTS credits that you would like to take.
The International Office will send you the Erasmus Learning Agreement upon successful nomination at the partner institution.
The International Office and the Dean's Office will confirm your selection and ask for any necessary corrections. The LA forms the basis for the recognition of the courses at the EBC Hochschule and is therefore binding.
