Bachelor's degree from Denmark
As a citizen from a country outside the EU, EEA or Switzerland, you can apply for admission based on a relevant Danish bachelor’s degree or another relevant degree at the same educational level.
Some Danish bachelor’s degrees have already been assessed to meet the admission requirements. This means that they automatically fulfill the academic requirements for admission.
If your bachelor's degree automatically fulfills the academic requirements for admission, you will still be subject to a holistic evaluation in accordance with the selection criteria
Applicants are evaluated on an individual basis by the admission committee after the application deadline. Solely the admission committee can determine if an applicant is qualified for admission by conducting a holistic evaluation of your application. This means that you are required to apply for admission in order to receive an assessment of your qualifications for a specific programme.
Citizens from a country outside the EU, EEA or Switzerland are exempted from paying the application fee if they hold a Danish bachelor's degree or a Danish professional bachelor's degree. Read more about the application fee.
