Admission to a master’s degree programme in Security Risk Management requires at 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 degree programme you are eligible to apply for the master’s degree programme in Security Risk Management.

You are required to document proficiency in English according to your background; see the language requirements.

Solely the applicant’s bachelor degree will be considered when the applicant’s academic qualifications is assessed. This means that it is not possible to complete supplementary courses in order to meet the specific admission requirements.

The only exception to this is activities that have been passed before the bachelor degree was finished. These courses can either be a part of a previous education or taken as single courses. But no more than 30 ECTS credits like this can be taken into account in the assessment.

Please contact the Student Advisory Service, if you are in doubt about the rules or have questions about your entry qualifications.

The following degrees do not qualify for admission and will not be taken into consideration:

As a rule of thumb a degree based solely in business studies does not qualify. However, applicants whose business based degree contains an international, sociological, organizational, political or cultural perspective might be taken into consideration depending on the total amount of ECTS/credits within social sciences.  

As a rule of thumb a degree based in the humanities does not qualify. These include History, Philosophy, Literature and Cultural studies. However, applicants whose humanities based degree contains half or more of ECTS/credits within the social sciences might be taken into consideration.

Please also note that we only accept BA/BSc degrees from research based universities. This means that degrees such as Professionsbachelor/Top Up degrees from University Colleges (Metropol, Copenhagen Business Academy, Royal Danish Military Army, KEA etc.) do not qualify for admission.
