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 Nanoscience.

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.

Admission requirements for the academic year 2017/2018

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 Nanoscience. Learn about when and how to apply.

  • BSc in Nanoscience from the University of Copenhagen (reserved access*)
  • BSc in Nanoscience from another Danish or Nordic university

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, Physics, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, Material Science or Natural Science and IT with a specialisation in Physics or Chemistry from the University of Copenhagen or another Danish or international university, you may also be admitted if your programme includes the following:

  • Introductory physics (electromagnetism and quantum theory).
  • Introductory chemistry (organic and inorganic).

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.

If you have a non-Nordic Bachelor’s degree you must be able to document your English language skills. Find information about language requirements here.

Prioritisation of applicants

If the number of qualified applicants to the programme exceeds the number of places available, applicants will be prioritised as follows:

  1. Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in Nanoscience from the University of Copenhagen seeking admission by way of direct extension of their completed BSc programme (reserved access).
  2. Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in Nanoscience.
  3. Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in Physics, Chemistry, Natural Science and IT with a specialisation in Chemistry or Physics from the University of Copenhagen or Molecular Biology or Material Science.
  4. 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):

  • According to their total number of ECTS within the relevant academic fields and the grades obtained.
