The education is SU grant approved by the Agency for Higher Education and Science, so the students can apply for SU. This can be done via the SU website that you find here.

SU is 6.166 DKK per month for students not living with their parents and up to 3.066 DKK per month (depending on house income) for students living with their parents. In addition, the student is entitled for an extra SU-allowance of 2.407 DKK per month, as SAFD is a private school.

You can apply for SU when you have been admitted to SAFD, but no earlier than one month prior to study entry. If you are looking for a student loan, you can get the loan from the quarter after the age of 18. If you for example fills 18 years in April, you will receive student loans from 1 July. If you have previously signed up for another education, you must be unsubscribed there, before you can apply for SU with us.
