Before you apply to the master's degree programme in Economics, 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 OR SWITZERLAND?

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

Prioritisation of applicants

The programme accepts a maximum of 210 students in September 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:

  • Grades from the qualifying bachelor’s degree.
  • Grades achieved for bachelor courses relevant to the MSc in Economics, i.e. microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.
  • Statement of purpose for wanting to study Economics (maximum 1 page) covering your motivation for applying.

If you already have a Master’s degree

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

Dispensation
In exceptional cases, we may grant a dispensation to be exempted from the Master's degree rule, if you can document that you are unable to make use of your previous Master's degree in the labour market.

In a short free text, you must explain why you cannot make use of your previous Master's degree in the labour market. Moreover, you must also upload documentation that confirms what you are writing in your free text. This may, for example, be a medical certificate or medical record that you have received when the loss of working capacity was determined.

Fill in this form and and attach it to your application in the Application Portal.

The deadline for applying for a dispensation is 15 March at 12.00 CET.
