Bachelor’s degree with a reserved access to the programme

As a bachelor with a reserved access, you are guaranteed a place on the Master’s programme in Biology.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You are a bachelor with a reserved access to the programme if you meet the following criteria:

  • You have completed your Bachelor’s programme in Biology at UCPH.
    The reserved access to the programme only applies to the university where you have done your Bachelor’s programme.

  • You must apply before the deadline for applications for the fourth summer intake after you have completed your Bachelor’s programme at the latest.

Please note that the deadline for applications is typically before you have completed your Bachelor’s programme if you want to start your studies in connection with the next intake. The next intake is for study start in February (winter intake) if you complete your Bachelor’s programme in block 1 or 2.

If you have accepted a place on a Master’s programme other than the Master’s programme to which you have a reserved access, and if you do not complete this programme, you will still have a reserved access, provided you meet the criteria for bachelors with a reserved access.

You exercise your reserved access when you

  • accept your student place. This means that you may decline the offer of a place on the study programme to which you have a reserved access and still retain your reserved access.

You lose your reserved access to the programme if you

If you completed your Bachelor’s programme before 1 January 2019, you no longer have a legal right of admission. You may still apply for admission, as you meet the admission requirements.

Get your documentation through data exchange

If, as an applicant, you have completed or expect to complete your Bachelor’s degree with a reserved access, you do not need to upload documentation. You merely need to grant us permission to collect data on your educational background from UCPH. We will contact you if something is missing in your application.


You have a duty of disclosure in relation to Master’s courses/Master’s programmes

If you have passed courses on an uncompleted Master’s programme, you must upload documentation for your passed courses. We use the information to assess whether you are entitled to credit transfers for your passed courses.

You are also required to disclose whether you have completed a Master’s programme. Read more about the Master’s degree rule.

If it turns out that you have used falsified or otherwise misleading documentation in your application, we are obliged to report this to the police and cancel your admission.


You can create three applications to UCPH

You can create a maximum of three applications to UCPH’s study programmes for the same study start date.


Follow the progress of your application

Once you have applied for admission, you can see the status of your application and receive messages from us about your application. If a message is posted for you in the application portal, you will receive a notification email at the email address you have registered in your application.
