In order to qualify for admission to the three-year course leading up to the Higher Commercial Examination, students should normally have completed and passed the Lower Secondary School Leaving Examination (Folkeskolens Afgangsprøve) in year 10 (class 9), as well as complied with certain other conditions. Alternatively, students may be asked to take a centrally set entry examination and attend an interview at the Handelsgymnasium.
Applications are made digitally on optagelse.dk.
The school and school counsellor will help students in years 10 or 11 (classes 9 or 10) complete their education plans and their application forms. The deadline for applications is 1 March and students will receive a written response by 1 June.
Students who have already left school can complete an application form on optagelse.dk. Applications submitted before 15 March will allow the school time to assess the application alongside students who are applying directly from years 10 or 11 (classes 9 or 10).
