Before you apply to the master's degree programme in Global Development, please make sure to acquaint yourself with all the important information on the application procedure, application deadlines and details about how to apply.
Prioritisation of applicants
The programme accepts a maximum of 58 students in September 2020.
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 achieved for bachelor courses relevant for the MSc in Global Development
- Relevant job experience (from student jobs, voluntary work etc.)
- International experience (during your bachelor studies, from working or studying abroad etc.)
- Statement of purpose for wanting to study Global Development (maximum 1 page) covering your motivation for applying, relevant experiences (e.g. internships, travels, student jobs, etc.), and a description of the intended thesis work.
Priority is given to candidates with the most recent bachelor degree. However, if your degree is only a few years old this will not disqualify you, especially if you have used the time to gain relevant experience related to global development.
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.
