Entry requirements

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

You can also apply if you hold a similar degree containing a minimum of 100 ECTS within computer science. The following subject areas must be covered:

  • Programming (at least 15 ECTS)
  • Algorithms, data structures and complexity (at least 15 ECTS)
  • Computer systems, including machine architecture and operating systems (at least 15 ECTS)
  • Mathematical auxiliary subjects, including discreet mathematics (at least 10 ECTS)
  • Databases (at least 5 ECTS)

Once you apply, the study board will assess whether your 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.

Legal claim

When you finish a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from University of Southern Denmark you have a legal claim for admission to the Master's programme if you apply in immediate continuation of the completed Bachelor's degree. Please be aware that your claim for admission is only valid if you apply before the deadline - find information on deadlines below.

Selection criteria

There is a limited number of study places in the programme.

If there are more qualified applicants than study places, applicants without a legal claim are selected based on the grade point average of the qualifying degree. If the degree is not completed at the time of application, the grade point average is calculated based on the courses passed at the time of application.
