Entry requirements

To apply for the Master's programme in Biology you need a relevant Bachelor's degree. You can apply if you hold a Bachelor's degree in Biology from University of Southern Denmark, Aalborg University, University of Copenhagen or University of the Faroe Islands. The degree from SDU gives you a legal claim for admission

You can also apply if you hold a similar degree containing basic courses in mathematics, chemistry and statistics, as well as 60 ECTS within biology. The biological courses must cover:

  • The structures and functions of biomolecules and cells
  • The systematics, structures, development and functions of organisms
  • The interaction between organisms and their environment
  • The evolution of life

Once you have applied the study board will assess whether you degree is qualifying.

English language requirements

The programme is taught in English. Therefore, you are required to submit proof of your proficiency in English unless your Bachelor's gives you a legal claim for admission.
