To apply for the Master's programme in Computer Science, you need a relevant Bachelor's degree.
- Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from SDU - gives you a legal claim for admission
When you finish a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the 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.
You can also apply if you have the following degree:
- Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Aarhus University, University of Copenhagen or Aalborg University.
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. See the English language requirements.
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.
As a bachelor's student at SDU, you can apply for permission to follow up to 30 ECTS Master's level courses even though you have yet to complete your Bachelor's degree.
You can be granted permission if you have the necessary academic qualifications. The progression of your Bachelor’s programme is crucial to the outcome of your application.
