Bachelor's degree from Denmark – University of Copenhagen

Statistics > Application procedure > BSc from DK - EU

Bachelor's degree from Denmark

EU, EEA or Swiss citizens

In order for you to be offered admission, you need to have a qualifying bachelor’s degree or another qualifying degree at the same educational level:

  • Some bachelor’s degrees have already been assessed to meet the academic admission requirements. See the list of Bachelor’s degrees that automatically fulfill the academic admission requirements.

  • If your degree does not fulfill the academic admission requirements automatically, the study board will evaluate you application individually. This means that the study board will evaluate whether your degree can meet the admission requirements based on its academic content.

If you are unsure whether your degree meets the admission requirements

You can only get an answer to whether or not your degree meets the admission requirement by applying for admission at the MSc Programme. Only the admission committee can evaluate whether you are qualified or not and they only do this once they have received your application.

Application fee

Citizens of the EU, EEA or Switzerland are not required to pay an application fee.

Tuition fees

Citizens of the EU, EEA or Switzerland are not required to pay tuition fees.

How to apply

Know the admission and language requirements

It is your bachelor’s degree and its academic contents, which determine whether you meet the admission requirements. If you hold a Bachelor's degree from a Danish University, you fulfill the language requirement.

Collect documentation for your application

When you apply for admission, you need to create an application at the application portal and upload relevant documentation. This is the only way you can apply for admission.
