To apply for the Master's programme in Medical Chemistry, you need a relevant Bachelor's degree. You can apply if you hold one of the following degrees:
- Medical Chemistry
You can also apply if you hold a similar degree including a minimum of 75 ECTS within chemistry and 25 ECTS within biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, pharmacology or drug formulation. Once you apply, the Study Board will assess whether your degree is qualifying.
If your degree does not fulfill the entry requirements, the study board will decide whether you can follow one or more supplementary courses.
The programme is taught in English. Therefore, you need a proficiency in English equivalent to level B in a Danish high school. Please note that the deadline for submitting language test results or other documentation of your proficiency is May 15 for the September intake and December 1 for the February intake.
English language tests
You can prove your English proficiency by passing a language test. We accept the following tests if the test is no more than two years old:
- IELTS academic test with a minimum overall band score of 6.5
- CPE from University of Michigan
High school English
If you hold a secondary school diploma from a country within EU/EEA, a Nordic country or from Switzerland, you may be able to prove your English proficiency by way of your secondary school diploma (high school). Along with your diploma, you have to upload a document from your school stating the number of English lessons you attended during the last three years of high school. The letter must be in English. Based on the provided material, we will assess whether your high school English is equivalent to a Danish level B. We encourage you to send us your papers in advance via SPOC for a pre-assessment.
If your entire bachelor’s degree was taken in the USA, Canada (English speaking part), Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom or Ireland, further documentation is not required. This only applies if the entire degree was taken in one of these countries. Furthermore, distance-learning programmes do not qualify for an exemption.
If you hold a Professional Bachelor's degree from Denmark taught in English, you are also exempted. However, we need a confirmation from the issuing institution that the programme was taught in English.
There is a limited number of study places in the programme.
If there are more qualified applicants than study places, applicants without a legal claim are selected based on the grade point average of the qualifying degree. If the degree is not completed at the time of application, the grade point average is calculated based on the courses passed at the time of application.
