To whom it may concern,

I am a student of AP degree, graduating in June, applying for online Bachelor programme. Can I receive -after meeting all conditions- unemployment benefits and be accepted for online education even I will seek a job abroad?

Thank you.

I am not sure I fully understand your question.

1. Are you finishing an AP degree in June? And this is an education of a duration of at least 18 months?

2. Are you are an EU/EEA citizen?

3. What do you mean by "and be accepted for online education"? Are you planning to continue studies after graduation in June?

Let me know this before I answer you.

Hi Anders,

1. Yes, I am finishing at least 18 months education in June.
2. I am an EU citizen.
3. I am planning to continue in online studies after graduation from September 2018.


you can not receive Unemployment benefits and at the same time participate in full-time studies. And this is regardless of it is online or normal study where you meet at the school.
Some few studies are possible to follow when receiving unemployment benefits. But this is only part time studies, and when receiving Unemployment benefits you should always be available for taking full time job with 1 days notice. If you think your online study is under this category, then we recommend you to ask your A-kasse, if the they can accept this.

But the clear rule is, that it is not possible to study and at the same time receive unemployment benefits.

You also asked if you can seek job abroad?
Yes this will be possible up to 3 months while still receiving Unemployment benefits from your danish A-kasse. You can read more about this option here:
