You need a relevant bachelor’s degree
To be admitted to a Master’s programme, you must have a relevant bachelor’s degree, professional bachelor’s degree or another degree on the same level. You can read about the specific requirements on the pages of each programme.
When you apply for admission to a Master’s, only your bachelor’s degree will be taken into account. If you have passed other degrees or courses after you completed your bachelor’s, these will not be included in the assessment of whether you fulfill the entry requirements.
If you do not fulfill the entry requirements, you may be able to take supplementary courses.
When applying, you may have to prove your proficiency in either English or Danish, depending on the language of instruction used in the applied programme. You can read about the requirements here.
Fulfilling the requirements is no guarantee for admission
There are a limited number of study places in the programmes at University of Southern Denmark. This means that you aren’t guaranteed a study place just because you fulfill the entry requirements. If there are more qualified applicants than study places, we select the applicants with the highest level of qualification. You will find the selection criteria listed on the pages of each programme.
Already have a Master’s?
If you already have a master’s degree from Denmark, it might not be possible for you to enroll in another master's programme. As a general rule you cannot be admitted to a new master's if your old degree is less than six years old and fully state financed.
There are a number of cases that qualify for an exemption. Du can apply for an exemption if you:
- can prove that a health condition makes it impossible for you to use your degree in the job market
- have an obsoleted degree. A degree is understood to be obsoleted if the degree has not been in use in the labour market during at least 5 years, or if the degree has been significantly changed or discontinued.
Furthermore you are automatically exempted if the applied degree is identified as fulfilling a particularly high demand in the labour market. At University of Southern Denmark this applies to the following programmes in 2017 and 2018:
- BEng in Electrical Energy Technology
- Computer Science (bachelor)
- Computer Science (master)
- Mathematics (bachelor)
- Mathematics (master)
- Mathematics-Economics (bachelor)
- Mathematics-Economics (master)
- Accounting (cand.merc.aud.)
