Bachelor's degree from Denmark

As a citizens from a country outside the EU, EEA or Switzerland you can apply for admission at African Studies if you:

1) Hold a relevant Danish Bachelor’s degree or another relevant degree at the same educational level.

2) Have proof that you meet the language requirements for English B or equivalent skill level (see below).

  • Some Bachelor’s degrees have already been assessed to meet the admission requirements. This means that they automatically fulfill the admission requirements. See the list of Bachelor’s degrees that automatically fulfil the admission requirements.
  • If your degree does not fulfill the admission requirements automatically, the study board will evaluate your application and assess if your degree can meet the admission requirements based on its academic content.

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