What is a self-assessment?

The self-assessment is an overview of the courses from your Bachelor’s degree, which cover the specific admission requirements of the MSc programme at UCPH.

Please include completed courses as well as courses you will complete before study start in September as part of your Bachelor’s degree.

  • Upload the PDF to your application.

The name of your courses in the self-assessment must correspond to courses in your official transcript.

Why you need to fill out and upload the self-assessment

The admission committee will use your self-assessment to assess if you are qualified for admission. If you do not upload the required self-assessment, the admissions committee cannot assess your qualifications and your application may be rejected.
