A maximum of ten students will be admitted to the programme at the University of Copenhagen each year.
The selection of students is based on the fulfillment of the following admission requirements:
A Bachelor's degree in a field of study that is relevant to the programme (e.g., theology, religious studies, classical philology, Semitic languages, ancient history, classical archeology). The applicant must have, or anticipate getting, a Bachelor's degree from a recognized and internationally acknowledged university.
Documented proficiency in one or more "classical" languages (i.e., 15 ECTS in Hebrew, Greek, Latin, or Arabic - 10 in Latin and 5 in Greek is e.g. sufficient, etc.).
The selection of students is furthermore based on the relevance of the Bachelor's degree in terms of field of study, as well as on the grades achieved, and on the number of courses and ECTS-points that students have gained in relevant study areas (e.g., theology, religion, ancient history, culture and language).
To gain admission to a Master's programme at University of Copenhagen, applicants must document qualifications on par with the Danish secondary school 'English level B' with a weighted grade point average of at least 3,0.
