International Bachelor’s degree

EU, EEA or Swiss citizens

In order for you to be offered admission, you need to have a qualifying bachelor’s degree or another qualifying degree at the same educational level.

  • Some Bachelor’s degrees have already been assessed to meet the academic admission requirements. See the list of Bachelor’s degrees that automatically fulfil the academic admission requirements.

  • If your degree does not fulfill the academic admission requirements automatically, the study board will evaluate your application individually. This means that the study board will evaluate whether your degree meets the admission requirements based on its academic content.

If you are unsure if your degree meets the admission requirements

You can only get an answer to whether or not your degree meets the admission requirement by applying for admission at the MSc Programme. Only the admission committee can evaluate whether you are qualified or not. They only do this once they have received your application.

Application fee

Citizens of the EU, EEA or Switzerland are not required to pay an application fee.

Tuition fees

Citizens of the EU, EEA or Switzerland are not required to pay tuition fees.

How to apply

Know the admission and language requirements

It is your Bachelor’s degree and its academic contents that determine whether you meet the admission requirements. Please note that the MSc programme is in English. Therefore, there is a specific language requirement for the study programme.

Collect documentation for your application

When you apply for admission, you need to create an application at the application portal and upload relevant documentation. This is the only way you can apply for admission.

See the list of documentation you need to upload when you apply for admission.

Apply for admission in the application portal

The application portal opens: 1 January
Application deadline: 1 March

You can submit 3 applications for UCPH

Please note that you may submit a maximum of 3 applications to UCPH study programmes with the same study start.

Follow your application

Once you have applied for admission, you will find application updates and received messages from the University on the application portal. When you receive a message on the application portal, you will receive an email at the mail address you have registered with your application.

Tips for the application portal

  • Use Firefox or Goggle Chrome as your browser when creating and submitting your application.
  • Check the user guide for the application portal when you fill out your application.
  • Read the FAQ where you can find answers to the most common questions concerning the application portal.
  • Contact SCIENCE Student Services if you cannot find the answers, you are looking for in the FAQ.
  • Contact Service desk if you have technical problems.

Check your application result

You will receive your application result via the application portal no later than 10 June. The result may come earlier, so it is important that you keep an eye out for messages from the beginning of May.

Accept your offer of admission

If you have received an offer of admission, you need to accept the offer. If you do not accept the offer before the deadline (which will appear in the offer of admission message), you will lose your spot in the MSc programme. Therefore, it is important to check the status of your application regularly on the application portal.
