Computer science

The present and the future are digital
There is an extreme shortage of computer scientists to find solutions to digital challenges, such as optimizing IT security, designing and managing databases, developing artificial intelligence and comprehensive IT systems. Plus all the challenges we don’t even know about yet.

Computer science is an education for you who are good at logical thinking. You are interested in immersing yourself in complicated issues and in devising innovative and creative solutions. At the same time, you like to create structure and work with systematics. It is not a prerequisite that you can program when you start the education.

Computer science is broad and covers areas such as programming, algorithms and data structures, computability, artificial intelligence, operating systems, optimization problems, web search, bioinformatics, databases and game programming.

At SDU, you get a computer science education at the highest level. The education focuses on understanding, analysis and thought work, which provides knowledge with great applicability and durability. You learn to develop programs that solve real-world tasks.

That is why you should study Computer Science in Odense
Computer science at SDU Odense is characterized by containing all the relevant branches of the subject. It gives you a broad generalist knowledge and at the same time the opportunity to choose your own specialty through the education.

When you study Computer Science at SDU Odense, you are close to Northern Europe’s largest cluster of IT and robot companies. It is therefore relatively easy to get a relevant student job. At the same time, it gives you good job opportunities when you finish your education.

Your lecturers at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science are highly available with help and guidance for your assignments and projects.

Meet two computer science students from SDU, and hear why they have chosen the program:

It all starts with a small question that holds great potential: What is your interest? The choice of study is the starting point for your adult life and helps to define how you can make a difference in the world.

At the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (IMADA), you can follow programs within the fields of mathematics and computer science.

Our educations have a strong focus on combining practical knowhow with a scientific understanding and skillset.

This is also the reason why you won’t find many of our graduates who has difficulty getting a job – there is a great demand for the very competencies we equip our students with – both within business and in research environments.

Below you find an overview of the different programs we offer in English. We also have a pallet of BA programs and traditional master’s degree programs, which we offer primarily in Danish. To see these, visit our Danish site.

You are always welcome to contact our outreach coordinator Peter Bækgaard Madsen at [email protected] and tel. 65 50 96 98, or the study counselors at the Faculty of Science. They are ready to advise you and help clarify which program will be the right one for you.

University Of Southern Denmark Tuition Fees

Who pays tuition fees?
Degree Students (explanation for a Degree Student)

Non-EU/EEA citizens are required to pay tuition. The tuition fee differs slightly from programme to programme. Check the section below about the prices to find the exact price of the Faculty you want to register for.

As a full degree student, you must pay the first semester’s tuition before arrival.

NOTE: Are you admitted to a programme, SDU will NOT start your visa application until we have received your tuition fee payment. Therefore, it can be a good idea to pay with a credit card since that kind of payment is registered immediately.

Guest students (explanation for a Guest Student)

All guest students pay tuition. Your nationality determines how much you pay. Tuition also varies according to your choice of courses. Check the section below about the prices to find the exact price for you as a guest student.

A tuition fee-paying full degree student going on an exchange stay arranged by SDU will still pay the tuition fee to SDU. A tuition fee-paying full degree student going on a self-arranged exchange stay and afterwards getting the obtained credits transferred, will not pay the tuition fee for the ECTS-credits obtained abroad. The student will pay the tuition fee in advance to SDU, and will then get the tuition fee for the obtained ECTS points refunded.

You do NOT pay tuition fees if you are:

an Exchange student
a student doing a full degree with an EU/EEA or Swiss citizenship
a student doing a full degree with a non-EU/EEA citizenship holding a permanent residence permit in Denmark
a student with a residence permit granted based on family reunification (if the permanent residence is in Denmark)
a student who has been granted residence in Denmark according to the EU rules and regulations
children of workers from non-EU/EEA countries with a residence permit pursuant to Article 9, section 1 (1-3) of the Danish Aliens Act and whose parents have been granted residence permits according to the necessary rules and regulations
A full-degree student with a non-EU/EEA citizenship, holding a temporary residence permit in Denmark must pay tuition fees in some cases. The article in the given residence permit decides if the tuition fees must be paid or not. Contact the Admission Office to find out if your residence permit results in paying tuition fees or not.

If you wish to apply for an exemption of tuition fees, you must document your residential status by submitting a copy of your residence permit/passport alongside your application.

What does tuition cover?
The tuition covers educational expenses, such as courses, academic supervising, and issuing of diplomas and exams.

The tuition differs according to the study programme or individual course you are registered for. Check the section “prices” below for the specific price.

Paying tuition fees
After you have been admitted, you will receive the payment information by email – it will be sent to the email stated in your application.
It is possible to pay by credit card or bank transfer.

If you pay with a credit card we will be notified of your payment immediately. If you pay via bank transfer it takes up to 21 days before your payment is shown in our account.

NOTE: if you apply for a programme at SDU the payment via bank transfer might slow down the process of your visa. SDU will first start your visa application once the payment is received
