Language requirements

The programme is taught in English. English must be passed with a grade equivalent to 3.0 or higher in the Danish grading scale (2 is passed, 12 is max) or submit proof of your proficiency in English unless your Bachelor's gives you a legal claim for admission. See the English language requirements.

Selection criteria

There is a limited number of study places in the programme. If there are more qualified applicants than study places, the following criteria are used for the selection of applicants without a legal claim:

  • The grade point average of your 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. 


Your application is easily submitted in the online application portal DANS. Unless your bachelor's degree gives you a legal claim for admission, please remember to attach the required documents along with documentation regarding your degree:

  • Proof of your English proficiency - documentation can be forwarded after the application deadline.
  • Course descriptions/CV, if your degree is not from SDU and isn't already listed as a qualifying degree  - can be omitted if relevant documentation isn't available

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.

Check to see whether you fulfil the conditions

By choosing your faculty below you can see which conditions you generally must fulfil to be permitted to take Master’s level courses. Please acquaint yourself with the rules before you apply for permission since you must indicate in your application whether you fulfil the conditions or not. Read more here.

If you have previously studied at the program, or if you already do, then special rules may apply when you apply for admission.

You can see which rules may apply for you and what to do on the page: Studied in a Master's programme before?

Have you completed a Master's programme?

If you've already obtained a Master's degree, you can only be admitted to a new programme if there are vacant study places in the programme.
