Language requirements

Master’s programmes taught in English do not require Danish language proficiency. However, they do have an English language proficiency requirement for admission.
Applicants are required to document English language proficiency and should expect to provide documentation in the form of a language test, such as TOEFL or IELTS.

Under certain circumstances, applicants can be exempt from taking a language test when other forms of documentation is available and accepted by the Faculty’s admissions office. Exemptions from taking a language test are based on such information as citizenship, origin of entry exam, and in some cases origin of high school exam.

The specific requirements vary from one programme to another, so please refer to the programme descriptions for full and extensive information on which tests to take, what scores to obtain, and whether you may be exempt from taking a test.
