Entrance examination in 2021
#1 – uniTEST
uniTEST is an online multiple-choice test that evaluates your academic aptitude. uniTEST is not a test of your knowledge within specific subjects but tests your general prerequisites for completing an academic degree. You will be tested on your abilities within the following areas: critical reasoning, quantitative reasoning and verbal reasoning.
The test lasts two and a half hours and consists of 95 questions. You only have to take the test once, even if you are applying for several programmes at SDU.
#2 – Interview
The purpose of the interview is to match expectations between you and the programme. The interview lasts approx. 15 minutes and you will get to talk to two employees from the engineering programme. The interview will evaluate your professional and personal competencies in relation to the engineering programmes.
The assessment includes the following criteria:
- Motivation for studying an engineering degree
- Personal integrity (e.g. reflection on own strengths and weaknesses in relation to an engineering degree)
- Communication skills (e.g. ability to enter into a dialogue with the interviewers).
You will receive a brief introduction to the interview when you check in on the actual interview day. You will have the opportunity to use the waiting time before your interview to consider, if there is anything you would like to ask us about. You only have to complete the interview once even if you have applied for admission to multiple engineering programmes.
All applicants who complete uniTEST will be invited for the interview. It is the overall result from uniTEST and the interview that determines whether you get a study place.
