You may apply for equal status with Danish citizens if you fall within Section 2(2), (3) or (4) of the Act on Integration of Aliens in Denmark

If you wish to apply for equal status with Danish citizens under this rule, you must fall within Section 2(2) (refugees) or Section 2(3) (aliens granted family reunification with a refugee) or Section 2(4) (other aliens granted family reunification) of the Act on Integration of Aliens in Denmark.

Please be aware that if you want to apply for equal status with Danish citizens because you fall within Section 2(4) (other aliens granted family reunification) of the Act on Integration of Aliens in Denmark, you must have obtained the right to reside in Denmark according to this rule on 1 July 2019 or later.

How to apply for the first time

What we do

You do not need to send documentation that you are or have been covered by paragraph 2 (2) (refugees) or paragraph 2 (3) or (4) (family reunification) per the Integration Act. We automatically receive information about your residence permit from the Danish Immigration Service. If you think there are errors or missing details in your residence permit, you must contact the Danish Immigration Service.

Equal status can be discontinued

If you apply for SU for a new study programme and previously have been granted equal status with Danish citizens according to the Danish rules, you do not have to apply for equal status again.

However, please note that you must apply for equal status again if you have lived outside of Denmark for a continuous period of more than two years, as your equal status is no longer valid after this period.

Facts - danish rules

If you have been granted equal status according to Danish rules, you cannot receive SU for a whole study programme abroad.

Refugees from Ukraine

You may apply for equal status with Danish citizens, if you fall within Section 2(2) of the Act on Integration of Aliens in Denmark, because you fall within “lov om midlertidig opholdstilladelse til personer, der er fordrevet fra Ukraine”.
