Pre-assessment is only available for applicants from Danish universities or university colleges.

If you do not have a bachelor’s degree that qualifies you for direct admission to the master’s programme, you can apply for an assessment of your educational background to see if it is similar to the requirements for admission to the master’s programme.

As an applicant from a Danish university or university college, you are entitled to 1 pre-assessment for 1 study programme. We will inform you whether you meet the admission requirements, based on an assessment made of the documentation you have submitted. You will be assessed on the basis of only 1 qualifying study programme. This is typically a bachelor’s programme or a professional bachelor’s degree programme.

Pre-assessment is a service offered by the Faculty of SCIENCE, but it is not mandatory for you to apply for admission afterwards.

You cannot ask for a pre-assessment if your bachelor’s degree already qualifies you for direct admission to the master’s programme to which you want to apply.

The pre-assessment is not a promise of admission

This means that even if you are assessed as qualified for admission, you are not guaranteed a place on the study programme.

You must apply for admission and have your application assessed similarly to all other applicants. Your chance of being offered admission will depend on the number of other qualified applicants in the same year compared to how many available spots the MSc programme offers.
