Key figures - foundation courses

Here you can find key figures for foundation courses at Aalborg University.

Foundation courses aim at qualifying students for admission to engineering programmes, natural sciences programmes and the Surveying, Planning and Land Management programme.

These courses are tailor-made for prospective students who lack qualifying examinations from their upper secondary education. They are organised as two-semester courses and three-semester courses and offered in Aalborg and Esbjerg. Single-subject courses are also offered. The courses are taught in danish.

Admission requirements: You must be able to document sufficient oral and written proficiency in Danish equivalent to the Leaving Examination of the Folkeskole.
