Status

Denmark is now participating with an active NCP, that allows mobile students from other EMREX countries visiting University of Copenhagen and The Technical University of Denmark to get their achievement records smooth and fast. SIU (Danish Agency for Institutions and Educational Grants) coordinates the participation. We hope that also Roskilde University and Aalborg University will join soon.

Students visiting Technical University of Denmark has experienced some problems, but they should be dealt with now, so if you are a student and has tried without success to transfer your achievement records, please try Again.
