Bachelor’s degree from Denmark

Citizens from a country outside the EU, EEA or Switzerland

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 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 from a country outside the EU, EEA or Switzerland with a Danish Bachelor’s degree or a Danish Professional Bachelor’s degree are not required to pay an application fee.

Tuition fees

Citizens from a country outside the EU, EEA or Switzerland must pay tuition fees.

Get your documentation via data exchange

If you are a student at a Danish university (UCPH, AU, AAU, SDU, RUC, ITU, DTU or CBS), we recommend that you collect  the documentation of your Bachelor’s degree automatically using the data exchange function. You simply ask the system to collect your educational data from your university.

If you have received an offer of conditional admission, you need to accept the offer. If you do not accept the offer before the deadline (which will be included in your conditional admission letter), you will lose your place in the MSc Programme. Therefore, it is important to check the status of your application regularly at the application portal.

After you have accepted the offer of conditional admission, you will receive an e-mail with all relevant information regarding your tuition fees.

Check your email regularly

When you receive a message in the application portal, a notification will be sent to  to the mail account you have registered with your application. Please be aware that emails from the application portal may end up in your spam filter.

Have you accepted and offer of conditional admission?


To get your final admission to your MSc programme you need to pay the first part of your tuition fees. When you accept the offer of admission, we will send you an e-mail with a link to our payment portal and instructions on how to make the tuition fee payment.

Deadline for paying the first tuition fees : 15 April

If you fail to pay your first tuition fees before the deadline, we will have to cancel your admission.


We look forward to meeting you and to welcoming you to the MSc programme. Use the timeline to see the important deadlines before your studies begin.
