If you have an EU citizenship, you can stay in Denmark and be a member of an unemployment insurance fund, as long as you provide the legal documentation for your European citizenship.
If you do not have an EU citizenship, you need to apply for a working- and residence permit in order to receive unemployment benefits.
If you are studying within the EU, you can be transferred to a Danish unemployment insurance fund within the first 8 weeks after you have left your last job in another European country. As of the new unemployment benefit regulations in 2023, students will also have to live up to a language criterion. This means that if you are a student, you must have attended Danish classes on a 6th grade level at the least, or be able to pass a 9th/10th grade final exam in order to receive unemployment benefits.
If you are a student within another field than the ordinary teacher’s education, and if you receive merits, for example, we advise you to contact us at 70 10 00 18, where we are ready to guide you.
