Before you apply to the master's degree programme in Anthropology, please make sure to acquaint yourself with all the important information on the application procedure, application deadlines and details about how to apply.

ARE YOU A CITIZEN IN DENMARK, EU, EEA, SWITZERLAND OR GREAT BRITAIN*?

ARE YOU A CITIZEN IN A COUNTRY OUTSIDE EU, EEA, SWITZERLAND OR GREAT BRITAIN?

* Please note that it has still not been determined whether British applicants will be charged application and tuition fees from the September 2021 intake.

Prioritisation of applicants

The programme accepts a maximum of 59 students in 2020.

Applicants with a legal right of admission will not be subject to assessment and selection, as they are guaranteed a place.

Selection criteria

If more applicants than the maximum intake fulfill the admission requirements, a selection will be made on the basis of a comprehensive evaluation, with emphasis on the following criteria:

  • General proficiency/marks in the qualifying degree program
  • Statement of purpose for wanting to study MSc in Anthropology (1-2 pages) covering your motivation for applying and a description of the intended field work and master’s thesis work.

Do you have a master degree?

If you already have a master's degree from Denmark or another country, you can, in principle, only be admitted to a new degree programme if there are places available on the programme for which you are applying for admission (the master's degree admission rule).

In exceptional cases, we may grant dispensation from the master’s degree admission rule.
