Quota 2 is for several different types of applicant:
Your application under quota 2 will thus not solely be evaluated on the basis of your average grade. Please note that you must fulfil the same specific requirements regarding academic level as under quota 1.
The best match
The University of Southern Denmark wishes to be able to identify those students with the best background for completing a programme, and this includes considerations regarding goal-directedness, motivation and academic proficiency. Our objective when enrolling students is to ensure "the best match" between the student and the programme. This can be done with the help of motivated applications and advisory interviews or tests, depending on the programme in question. It is one reason why the University of Southern Denmark has been given permission to retain the large number of quota 2 places in the university's health science programmes.
Quota 2 procedures differ from programme to programme so it is a good idea to familiarise yourself with the procedures for the programme you are applying for. You should find out whether you must forward a motivated application, attend an interview or take a test.
An average grade in selected subjects is made use of in connection with evaluating applications for some programmes. The average is calculated as an average of the grades in selected subjects based on the 7-point grading scale. Grades based on the 13-point grading scale are converted to the 7-point grading scale, after which a quotient is calculated. Averages are arrived at as follows:
- First, an average for each subject is calculated by adding the individual grades awarded and dividing them by the number of grades.
- The averages are then added and divided by the number of subjects that comprise the quota 2 criterion.
