Admission Requirements

If you have completed a Bachelor’s degree or are enrolled in the final semester of a Bachelor’s programme you are eligible to apply for the Master’s programme in Molecular Biomedicine.

Regardless of what university you are enrolled at, you can - if you meet the language requirements - apply on the basis of a Bachelor’s Degree that grants direct access or another relevant Bachelor’s Degree.

Bachelor’s degrees that grant direct access

If you hold one of the degrees listed below, you are considered to meet all admission requirements and have direct access to apply to the Master’s programme in Molecular Biomedicine. Learn about when and how to apply.

  • BSc in Molecular Biomedicine from the University of Copenhagen (reserved access*)
  • BSc in Molecular Medicine from Aarhus University

* If your Bachelor’s degree grants reserved access, you are guaranteed a place on the Master’s programme if you apply before the application deadline during the first application period after you complete your Bachelor’s degree.

Other Bachelor’s degrees

If you have a Bachelor’s degree other than those listed above, you must submit additional documentation along with your application so the University can evaluate whether or not you meet the admission requirements. Learn about when and how to apply.

If you have a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from the University of Copenhagen you may be admitted if your programme includes the following elements:

  • A minimum of 22.5 ECTS credits from courses in cell biology.
  • A minimum of 15 ECTS credits from courses in human physiology.

If you have a Bachelor's degree in Medicine from the University of Copenhagen you may be admitted if your programme includes the following elements:

  • A minimum of 30 ECTS credits from courses in molecular biology.

If you have a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Copenhagen or other Danish or international universities you may be admitted if your programme includes the following elements:

  • A minimum of 60 ECTS credits of formal classes in the fields of protein chemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, human physiology and pathology, of which a minimum of 30 ECTS credits must be from courses in molecular biology.
  • Relevant laboratory experience equivalent to a minimum of 30 ECTS credits from courses, projects etc. (must be documented)

The Faculty may also admit applicants who, after an individual academic assessment, are deemed to possess educational qualifications equivalent to those required above.

Language requirements

If you have a Nordic Bachelor’s degree, you must as a minimum be able to document English language qualifications comparable to a Danish upper secondary school English B level.

  1. Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biomedicine from the University of Copenhagen seeking admission by way of direct extension of their completed BSc programme.
  2. Other applicants.

If the number of qualified applicants within a category exceeds the number of places available, applicants will be prioritised according to the following criteria (listed below in prioritised order):

  • obtained ECTS credits in the following subjects. Each subject will be assessed individually until all applicants have been prioritised.
    1. Human/mammalian molecular biology
    2. Human/mammalian cellular biology
    3. Human pathology and physiology
    4. Protein chemistry
    5. Documented experience of relevant laboratory work
