If you are an applicant with an examination from Sweden, Norway, Iceland or Finland, you can see below how we evaluate your examination in relation to Danish academic levels.
You must have passed a qualifying examination in order to be eligible to apply for admission to a programme.
- Sweden: a three-year upper secondary school education or similar.
- Norway: general study competence based on a three-year upper secondary school education at a school of higher education or similar.
- Iceland: a four-year college degree with at least 140 credits or similar.
- Finland: Ylioppilastutkintotodistus/upper secondary school examination and lukion päättötodistustus/upper secondary school leaving certificate.
Always the result of the first examination that counts
It is not possible in Denmark to improve an examination result by retaking courses or taking supplementary courses after completing an upper secondary education. This means that calculating a Danish average grade from on an examination certificate is done on the basis of the original upper secondary school leaving certificate (slutbetyg, vitnemål, studentsprof, avgångsbetyg). Improvements in grades or additional courses must therefore be listed in a separate document.
Specific admission requirements
There are also specific admission requirements that must be fulfilled for all of our programmes. They are typically subjects/courses that are included in the qualifying examination, but in some cases it may be necessary to supplement them after completing the qualifying examination. Table converting the Nordic subjects/courses to correspond to the Danish education system.

In this e-mail you are referred to the admission self service where you will be able to follow the status of your application during the application procedure.
