General entry requirements - the Faculty of Science

As an exchange student you can follow the courses available here provided that you meet the prerequisites of the given courses and that there is room. A number of master's degrees are offered in English. These courses are at 4th and 5th year level. Sometimes courses at 3rd year level are offered in English. Whatever courses you are interested in, it is important that you list them all with course letters and numbers. We then check with the relevant department, if you can be enrolled.

If you wish to do laboratory work instead of taking (one or two) courses, it’s important that you describe what you wish to work on for the relevant professor to assess it and accept you.
