The Faculty may also admit applicants who, after an individual academic assessment, are deemed to possess educational qualifications equivalent to those required above.

The admission committee will evaluate your application individually. This means that they will evaluate whether your degree meets the admission requirements based on its academic content.

If you are unsure if your degree meets the admission requirements

You can only get an answer to whether or not your degree meets the admission requirement by applying for admission at the MSc Programme. Only the admission committee can evaluate whether you are qualified or not. They only do this once they have received your application.

Language requirements

You are required to document proficiency in English according to your background; see the language requirements.

Special requirements for Erasmus Mundus Scholarship applicants

To be eligible for evaluation your application for a student scholarship must include a certificate – i.e. an official document – verifying your place of residence.

This can either be:

  • In the form of a residence certificate issued (signed and stamped) in accordance with your municipality, region or state’s normal registration rules

  • In the form of an official letter (signed and stamped) by your current place of work, study or training confirming your current occupation/activity and place of residence.

Neither of these documents can be more than 6 months old calculated backwards as from the submission deadline.

The verification of residence is to be submitted as part of your application for admission and student scholarship. Without this document you application for a student scholarship will be incomplete and regarded as ineligible.
