Admission to the master’s degree programme in Human Biology requires as a minimum successful completion of a qualifying and recognised university degree equivalent in level and content to a Danish bachelor’s degree.
If you have completed a bachelor’s degree or are enrolled in the final semester of a bachelor’s programme you are eligible to apply for admission to the master’s degree programme in Human Biology.
You are required to document proficiency in English according to your background; see the language requirements.
There are no bachelor’s degrees that automatically fulfil the academic admission requirements for the master’s programme in Human Biology.
To be admitted to the programme, you must hold a recent and relevant bachelor’s degree and meet the language requirements.
Academic admission requirements
You must hold a bachelor’s degree in:
- exercise and sport sciences
- or a corresponding bachelor’s degree within the field of health sciences or natural sciences.
You must also provide documentation that your bachelor's degree has been passed with a weighted average of 7 or above (Danish marking scale).
Graduation year requirement
You must have earned your bachelor’s degree within a maximum of 5 years prior to the start of the first semester of the master’s programme, e.g. for the intake in the autumn of 2020, you must have graduated by September 2015 or thereafter. In exceptional circumstances the Admissions Committee may waive the graduation year requirement.
If your bachelor’s degree is too old, you can apply for an exemption from the graduation year requirement. If you choose to apply for an exemption, you must submit the following documents along with your application for admission:
- A letter explaining how you have maintained your academic qualifications since graduation (e.g. relevant work, internships, further studies)
- Relevant documentation (e.g work contracts, diplomas etc).
When we assess whether you meet the admission requirements for the master's degree program, Danish legislation only allows us to assess your bachelor's degree. Consequently, you cannot study supplementary courses between bachelor's and master's degree programs in order to meet the admission requirements.
If you have passed courses/projects before you complete the qualifying bachelor's degree, these can be included in the assessment, even though they are not part of the bachelor's degree program.
- It applies to courses/projects you have taken as single subjects and courses/projects you have taken as part of another study program.
- A maximum of 30 ECTS credits of these courses/projects may be included.
