You can apply for a preliminary assessment of your foreign qualification, if you want to know whether you meet the admission requirements for the bachelor’s programmes you intend to apply for at Roskilde University.
Preliminary assessments are offered between 1 October and 1 December, which means that the assessment will be completed before you can submit your actual admission application.
Before you apply for a preliminary assessment, please take time to read the information about admission requirements for the bachelor’s programmes carefully.
You can find information about the admission requirements here.

Answer to your application
Once we have completed the preliminary assessment, the outcome of the assessment will be sent to you by e-mail.
A preliminary assessment is not an application for admission to Roskilde University.
Even if your application for preliminary assessment is considered to meet the general and specific admission requirements for the programme you intend to apply for, you are not guaranteed admission to Roskilde University. Rules, regulations and requirements at the time of preliminary assessment may differ from those at the time of application for admission, and Roskilde University cannot be held liable for such changes.
Only the decision of your actual admission application is legally binding. You can apply for admission via www.optagelse.dk from 1 February until 15 March.
