Test-based admission at SDU

Test-based admission at SDU

When you apply for admission to SDU before 15 March, we'll invite you to participate in an entrance examination which you have to pass to be considered in quota 2. At SDU we have chosen to allocate all of our study places in 'quota 2' based on tests in which you're given the chance to prove your qualifications.

The tests are of course supposed to give us an impression of you. But it's equally important that the tests give you a better  insight into what is expected from you at the other side of study commencement. We believe, this gives you the best foundation for your studies at SDU.

The entrance tests

When applying to SDU, you will be participating in a general aptitude test as well as a test of your prerequisites for studying in the particular programme you've applied for admission to.

#1 - uniTEST

uniTEST is a multiple-choice test evaluating your general 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 within the areas 'critical reasoning', 'quantitative reasoning', and 'verbal reasoning'. You only have to complete the test once, even if you apply for several programmes at SDU.

#2 - programme specific tests

You will also be participating in one or more tests concerning the programmes you've applied for admission to. The test form differs from each programme but could be an interview, motivational letter, a written test or similar. In the programme specific test, we may for instance look for:

  • Your knowledge about the programme
  • Your personal skills
  • Your motivation
  • Your aims with the programme
