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 Agricultural Economics.
If you hold one of the degrees listed below, you meet all academic requirements. Learn about when and how to apply. Note, however, that you still need to document that you meet the language requirements of the programme.
- BSc in Agricultural Economics/Environmental and Food Economics from the University of Copenhagen (reserved access to the programme)
- BSc in Economics from University of Copenhagen or University of Southern Denmark or University of Aarhus.
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 Natural Resources with the specialization in Environmental Economics you may be admitted provided that your programme includes the following specified courses:
- LOJB10234U Samfundsøkonomi or NMAA04034U Makroøkonomi 1: Introduktion til nationaløkonomi (MakØk1) or AØKB08002U Økonomiske principper B or NIFB13011U Makroøkonomi og konjukturer - 7.5 ECTS credits
- NIFB14006U International Economics or AØKA08021U International Economics (F) or equivalent - 7.5 ECTS credits
If you have a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Copenhagen, other Danish, Nordic or international universities you may be admitted if your programme includes the following:
- Micro Economics (at least 22.5 ECTS credits)
- Macro Economics (at least 7.5 ECTS credits)
- International Economics (at least 7.5 ECTS credits)
- Statistics (at least 7.5 ECTS credits)
- Econometrics (at least 7.5 ECTS credits)
- Mathematics (at least 7.5 ECTS credits)
If you only need the necessary ECTS credits in the field of econometrics in order to meet the admission requirement, you can be granted conditional admission. If you have been granted conditional admission, you must pass an approved econometrics course of at least 7.5 ECTS credits prior to your studies begin. The summer course Introduction in Econometrics has been approved. You must register for the course yourself.
You can apply to have another econometrics course approved by writing to email@example.com. In the email, you write the name of the Master's programme you want to apply for, and write that you wish to apply to have another econometrics course approved in addition to an application for the Master's programme. Also state when you plan on taking the course, and attach a course description for the course.
The Faculty may also admit applicants who, after an individual academic assessment, are deemed to possess educational qualifications equivalent to those required above.
Qualifying degree and other courses/projects
When we assess whether you meet the admission requirements for the Master's degree program, Danish legislation only allows us to assess your Bachelor's degree. Consequently, you cannot study supplementary courses between Bachelor's and Master's degree programs in order to meet the admission requirements.
If you have passed courses/projects before you complete the qualifying Bachelor's degree, these can be included in the assessment, even though they are not part of the Bachelor's degree program.
- It applies to courses/projects you have taken as single subjects and courses/projects you have taken as part of another study program.
- A maximum of 30 ECTS credits of these courses/projects may be included.
Unless you have reserved access to the program you are applying for, you are required to document proficiency in English; see the language requirements.
International Bachelor’s degree
You can only get an answer to whether or not your degree meets the admission requirement by applying for admission to the MSc Programme. Only the admission committee can evaluate whether you are qualified or not and they only do this once they have received your application.
Bachelor’s degree from Denmark
You are entitled to one admission assessment for one study programme, where, based on an assessment of the documentation you have submitted, we will inform you whether you meet the admission requirements.
This is a service offered by SCIENCE, but it is not a service you have to make use of in order for you to apply for admission.
If the number of qualified applicants to the programme exceeds the number of places available, applicants will be prioritised as follows:
- Bachelor's degree with reserved access to the programme. This can only be Bachelor’s degrees from SCIENCE.
- Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Economics/Environmental and Food Economics from the University of Copenhagen.
- Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Copenhagen, University of Southern Denmark or Aarhus University
- Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in Natural Resources with the specialisation in Environmental Economics from the University of Copenhagen.
- 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):
- ECTS credits obtained in relevant subjects (micro economics, macroeconomics, international economics, agricultural economics, environmental- or resource economics, statistics, econometrics, mathematics)
