Qualifying degree and other courses/projects
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 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.
Unless you hold a Bachelor’s degree from a Danish University, you are required to document proficiency in English according to your background; see the language requirements.
