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, SWITZERLAND OR GREAT BRITAIN*?

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

* Please note that it has still not been determined whether British applicants will be charged application and tuition fees from the September 2021 intake.

Prioritisation of applicants

The programme accepts a maximum of 25 students in February 2022.

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. The assessment of grades is made solely on the basis of the transcripts and grades submitted before the application deadline. Grades submitted after the application deadline will not be included in the selection of applicants.
  • Grades achieved for bachelor courses relevant to the MSc in Economics, i.e. microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.
  • Relevant academic experience, including work experience. If the applicant possess any academically relevant experience, including work experience, the applicant must submit a statement which describes the experience acquired and its relevance towards the MSc in Economics.

Do you have a master degree?

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

In exceptional cases, we may grant dispensation from the master’s degree admission rule.
