Quota 1 and 2 applications
In quota 1, your chance of admission to the University depends exclusively on the grade point average from the upper secondary school examination. Furthermore, it is necessary to fulfil all the general and specific requirements for the study programme in question. See the minimum grade point averages for admission from the past few years (in Danish only).
If you have applied for admission in quota 2, your application will automatically be processed in quota 1 if your examination is eligible for admission in quota 1.
We are in the process of planning quota 2 for 2021. Further information will be made available as soon as possible.
Starting in 2020 University of Copenhagen has implemented a new application procedure for quota 2.
But the current COVID-19 crisis has caused the UCPH to change the quota 2 admission procedure for 2020. UCPH cancels the planned quota 2 test in the UCPH exam rooms, but maintains the written interviews, which will now take place online from home.
The remaining admission requirements are still in effect – among other things, it is necessary to document that you have academic language skills in Danish.
Diplomas from the Nordic countries
Based on the Nordic Treaty on Recognition of Qualifications and Access to Higher Education, Nordic applicants are evaluated for admission on equal terms as applicants with a Danish upper secondary school examination − both in quota 1 and quota 2.
IB and other international diplomas
Applicants with an International Baccalaureate (IB) or other recognised international examinations are evaluated for admission on equal terms as applicants with a Danish upper secondary school examination − both in quota 1 and quota 2.
Diplomas from the EU/EEA
On the basis of the EU/EEA Treaty on Recognition of Qualification and Access to Higher Education, applicants from the member countries are evaluated for admission on equal terms as applicants with a Danish upper secondary school examination both in quota 1 and quota 2.
Diplomas from non-EU/EEA and non-Nordic countries
Applicants with other foreign upper secondary (high) school examinations are evaluated on the basis of a quota 2 interview. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, UCPH has cancelled the tests, which should have been a part of the new quota 2 application process. The interviews is still a part of the process, but is written and carried out online at home. Only Tandplejer (danish) will conduct verbal interviews.
