Requirement of supplementary courses
The Danish Agency may state that admission to university bachelor’s programmes normally requires supplementary courses in addition to your upper secondary education. If that is the case, Roskilde University will always require you to have passed supplementary courses in addition to your upper secondary education. E.g. 1 year of higher education or equivalent supplementary courses.
What if my foreign qualification is not mentioned by the Danish Agency?
If the Danish Agency does not mention your type of qualification, and you want to know if it fulfils the requirement of an entry qualification, you can either:
- get an assessment of your qualification by the Danish Agency OR
- contact the Admissions Office at Roskilde University at email@example.com
