SU during your education

Every Dane aged 18 and above is entitled to public support for his or her education. Students are given grants by the Danish State to cover living costs so that students can fully concentrate on their studies.

Normally you must be a citizen of Denmark to be entitled to SU. If you are a foreign citizen, however, you have the possibility of applying for equal status with Danish citizens and thus being approved to receive SU.

If you are not a Danish citizen, you must fulfil certain conditions to be placed on an equal status with Danish citizens and receive state education grant (SU) for education in Denmark.

If you do not have an education agreement with a farmer, you can get SU during your school stay on basic course, if you are at least 18 years of age.

If you have an education agreement with a farmer, you will receive a trainee salary during your school stays.

You only get SU on during basic course. During the internship, and in the subsequent school stays, you will receive a trainee salary.

As the education is classified as a youth education, you do not spend any your monthly portion of your SU grant (SU-clips) as long as you go to Kalø.

You can apply for SU when you have been notified that you have been admitted to an education at the earliest - and at the earliest one month before you start your basic course.
