Can I apply for a degree without losing benefits?

I completed my 4 years bachelor in Denmark and I'm on a-kasse and unemployment benefits from 3 months. If I want to be back to study by enrolling to a Master degree will I lose all my benefits I-m receiving as unemployed?

No, you will not loose the unemployment benefits (dagpenge) you get in the period between completing bachelor and starting master.

You receive benefits now full legally with the graduate status from your bachelor. As long as you are unemployed, you can not be asked to pay anything back.

But off course you will not be able to continue receiving benefits/dagpenge, when you start on the master.
