Bachelor's degree from Denmark

As a citizen of the EU (including Denmark), EEA or Switzerland, you can apply for admission based on a relevant Danish bachelor’s degree or another relevant degree at the same educational level.

  • If you hold a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from the University of Copenhagen, you have a legal right of admission to the master’s programme in Animal Science.
  • Some bachelor’s degrees have already been assessed to meet the admission requirements. See the list of bachelor’s degrees that automatically fulfill the admission requirements.
  • If your degree does not automatically fulfill the admission requirements, the Admissions Committee will assess the academic content of your bachelor’s degree

You can only get an answer to whether or not your degree meets the admission requirement by applying for admission to the MSc programme.

Solely the Admissions Committee can assess whether you are qualified or not. They do this once they have received your application after the application deadline.
