Should you want to submit an application for equal status with Danish citizens based on this guideline, you need to satisfy those two conditions:

  2. Your better half should be or has retained his/her status as an employee or perhaps a person that is self-employed Denmark.

You must be aware of the fact that your right to SU is a derived right based on your spouse’s status as a worker or a self-employed person in Denmark under EU law if you receive state educational grant (SU) as the spouse of an EU/EEA citizen. Which means the right is lost by you to SU if:

  • A divorce is got by you from your own partner
  • Your partner loses his/her status as a member of staff or even a self-employed individual in Denmark under EU legislation

Please be aware, that with the phrasing “worker or self-employed individual” we mean individuals, whom relating to EU legislation may be considered to be workers. Read more about a member of staff or even a person that is self-employed Denmark under EU legislation.
