Prioritisation of applicants
If the number of qualified applicants to the programme exceeds the number of places available, applicants will be prioritised as follows:
- Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in Machine Learning and Data Science from the University of Copenhagen seeking admission by way of direct extension of their completed BSc programme.
- Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree within the field of natural science or technical science based on grades and courses taken (Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science) relevant to bioinformatics. If different grading systems make comparison impossible, applicants will be prioritised on the basis of an individual evaluation by the Admission Committee.
- Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree within the field of natural science or technical science based on the interdisciplinary nature of their education, i.e. priority will be given to applicants whose Bachelor’s degree include courses in Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science.
- Other applicants
Applicants are then prioritised according to the relevance of courses taken and previous experience within bioinformatics.
If the number of qualified applicants within a category exceeds the number of places available, applicants will be prioritised according to the following criteria (all criteria apply):
- Number of ECTS credits taken in courses relevant for bioinformatics.
- Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree age of more than 5 years have low priority.
