Do you not have a European passport?
CCDS is an independent institution. Under Danish regulation only students applying for a state school are eligible for student visa, and therefore student visa unfortunately does not apply to CCDS-students. However, Denmark has special agreements to selected countries regarding visa for long-term stays in Denmark. Please go to www.nyidanmark.dk (“new in Denmark” – the official site for immigration to Denmark) to find information on what options applies to you depending on your home country. It is a very good idea to consult your local Danish embassy to help guide you.
Note that Visa application takes 2-3 months to process, and therefore we must have received your application to audition before the 1st of June in an audition period if you are a non-EU citizens.
