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 Agriculture.

Bachelor’s degrees that automatically fulfill the academic requirements

If you hold one of the degrees listed below, you are considered to meet all academic requirements. Learn about when and how to apply. Note, however, that you must continue to document that you meet the applicable language requirements.

  • Natural Resources with the specialisation in Plant Science (reserved access to the programme).
  • Natural Resources from the University of Copenhagen.
  • Natural Resources, Agriculture, Horticulture, Agrobiology or Environmental Science from Danish, Nordic or international universities.
  • Agricultural and Environmental Management from Danish Business Academies.

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.

Academic requirements

Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology, Geography and Geoinformatics, Biotechnology or similar from the University of Copenhagen, other Danish, Nordic or international universities may be admitted if their programme includes two of the following three areas:

  • Biology, plant science or ecology (7.5 ECTS credits)
  • Natural resources (soil, water, climate) (7.5 ECTS credits)
  • Economics or regulation (7.5 ECTS credits)

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.

Language requirements

Unless you have reserved access to the program you are applying for, you are required to document proficiency in English depending on your background; see the language requirements.
