What are the main priorities in a quota 2 and quota 3 assessment?
When assessing quota 2 and quota 3 applications at the International Bachelor in Social Sciences, emphasis is partly given to your academic background and work experience and partly to your motivated application. Your application must demonstrate that given your experience, you are qualified to study the International Bachelor in Social Sciences, and against this background you should explain your motivation.
In addition to your motivated application, emphasis is also given to activities relevant to the social sciences. These could be academic supplementary activities such as Higher Preparation Course (HF) supplementary subjects and other higher education activities and/or relevant social sciences-related work, folk high school education, travels, voluntary work, military service and conscientious objector service plus general work experience.
Relevant work experience
Social sciences-related work activities must be relevant in relation to the social sciences subjects. It can e.g. be work as a teacher or within organizational- or communication–based work (however, not telemarketing, service assistance work, office messenger work). In addition, importance is attached to whether or not your work includes management responsibility. It is up to you as an applicant to explain in your motivational letter how your activities are relevant. If you are in doubt whether or not your work experience is relevant to the International Bachelor in Social Sciences, you are very welcome to contact our study guidance.
Relevant upper-secondary school level subjects
When assessing quota 2 and quota 3 applications, emphasis is given to relevant upper secondary school level subjects, unless the subjects are part of your upper-secondary school examinations. If these subjects are comprised by your upper-secondary school examinations, it is required that the subjects are later passed at a higher education level.
The subjects below are relevant in connection with admission to the International Bachelor in Social Sciences. There may, however, also be other subjects which are relevant. If you have any questions, please contact the Study Guidance Office for Bachelor Students.
- Social Science
- English at Danish A-level
- Business Economics
The education activity is documented in the form of examination results transcript(s), course certificates or similar documents which may prove that you have completed the specified course(s).
Higher education, voluntary work, study abroad, folk high school education, military service and conscientious objector service
In addition to the above activities, folk high school education, studies abroad, voluntary work, military service and conscientious objector service can also form part of the quota 2 and quota 3 application assessment.
As an applicant, it is your responsibility to demonstrate in which way you have acquired special competencies through the different activities, and in which way they are relevant to the programme you wish to enrol in.
It is important that you specify the scope of e.g. work activities, folk high school education, studies abroad. I.e. in the application form on optagelse.dk, you must specify the period for the activity and e.g. the number of hours in relation to the work activities and in relation to voluntary work.
