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 Security Risk Management.

You must submit documentary proof that you meet the admission requirement along with your application so the University can evaluate whether or not you meet the admission requirements.

Admission requirements:

  • A bachelor degree within the Social Sciences, including Business Studies, or have passed a programme at a similar level.
  • Competences obtained within the field of Social Science Methods, including qualitative and/or quantitative methods, equivalent of 20 ECTS at bachelor level.

Documentation for the admission requirements is explained in Application Procedures

Admission restrictions/entrance exams

If there are more qualified applicants than available spaces on the programme, the selection of admitted applicants is based on:

  • Grade point average from the study programme upon which admission is based.
  • A letter of motivation (2-3 pages), including information about your academic background, your motivation for applying to the MSc in Security Risk Management, what you hope to gain from the MSc in Security Risk Management and any relevant interests, strengths, ambitions or research interests.
  • Curriculum vitae (max. 2 pages)
  • Academic references (max. 2)
  • Interviews (the Board of Admission  reserves the right to conduct interviews with the applicants)

The admission capacity has been fixed to 50 slots per year.

Supplementary activities

Only a Bachelor degree will be considered as the entry qualification to a Master’s programme. This means that supplementary courses and the like taken after the bachelor degree will not be taken into account in the assessment.

The only exception to this is activities that have been passed before the bachelor degree was finished. These courses can either be a part of a previous education or taken as single courses. But no more than 30 ECTS credits like this can be taken into account in the assessment.

Please contact the Student Advisory Service, if you are in doubt about the rules or have questions about your entry qualifications.
