Bachelor's degree from Denmark

EU, EEA or Swiss citizens

In order for you to be offered admission, you need to have a relevant bachelor’s degree or another relevant  degree at the same educational level:

  • Some bachelor’s degrees have already been assessed to meet the academic admission requirements. See the list of Bachelor’s degrees that automatically fulfill the academic admission requirements.

  • If your degree does not fulfill the academic admission requirements automatically, the admission committee will evaluate you application individually. This means that the admission committee will evaluate whether your degree meets the admission requirements based on its academic content.

If you are unsure whether your degree meets the admission requirements

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.

No application fee

Citizens of the EU, EEA or Switzerland are not required to pay an application fee.

No tuition fees

Citizens of the EU, EEA or Switzerland are not required to pay tuition fees.
