Admission requirements for Mathematical Bioscience
You may apply for admission if you have a bachelor’s degree equivalent to a Danish bachelor’s degree. To qualify for admission you must fulfil specific admission requirements for the Mathematical Bioscience master's programme as well as language requirements.
Roskilde University has preapproved a number of bachelor’s degrees which fulfil specific admission requirements.
If you have a bachelor’s degree that is not preapproved you may still apply for admission. The Admissions Office will assess if the academic content of your educational background fulfills the specific admission requirements.

If your bachelor’s degree is on the list of degrees that have been preapproved it fulfils the specific admission requirements. If your degree is not on the list, the Admissions Office will assess if the academic content of your educational background fulfils the specific admission requirements.
We are not able to assess your qualifications before you apply for a master’s programme.

Specific admission requirements for Mathematical Bioscience
In order to qualify for admission you must have a bachelor's degree in natural science or engineering that includes at least 30 ECTS in mathematics. The 30 ECTS must include the following course elements:
 Algebra
 Differential equations
 Analysis
 Calculus
The University makes an individual assessment of whether your qualifications cover the above subject areas to a sufficient extend based on the documents that you upload with your application.
Please note that only formal qualifications (ECTS/credits) are assessed, and that the university only takes ECTS/credits passed as part of or prior to the graduation date of the bachelor’s programme into account.

If you have completed one of the following bachelor’s programmes you have a legal right of admission (retskrav) to the master's programme in Mathematical Bioscience:
 Mathematics + Bioprocess Science
 Mathematics + Chemistry
 Mathematics + Computer Science
 Mathematics + Datalogi
 Mathematics + Environmental Biology
 Mathematics + Medicinalbiologi
 Mathematics + Molecular Biology
 Mathematics + Physics
In order to use your legal right of admission to the master's programme in Mathematical Bioscience, you must apply for admission to the master's programme in accordance with current application deadlines and procedures.
If you apply after the application deadline you may only be admitted if the university offers vacant study places.
