In order to fulfil one or more of the specific admission requirements that you lack, you should take supplementary courses. You may also be able to get an individual competence assessment of your subject-related qualifications or apply for an exemption from the specific admission requirements instead.
Taking supplementary courses in Denmark
If you live in Denmark, there are different options to complete supplementary courses that vary in duration - from short summer courses to half year or one year courses.
On vuc.dk and gsdanmark.dk you can find information about the various supplementary courses including courses offered and dates. Please note that the websites are in Danish, as the courses are mainly offered in Danish.
If you have further questions about supplementary courses in Denmark, you should contact eVejledningen.
Taking supplementary courses abroad
If you are taking a supplementary course abroad, we advise you to contact the Admissions Office first at email@example.com to know if the course will be recognized by the university.
Individual competence assessment of your subject-related qualifications
If you live in Denmark, you may be able to get an individual competence assessment of your subject-related qualifications. You can apply for an individual competence assessment, if you can document your overall skills, knowledge and qualifications in the specific admission requirement that you lack. It can be skills gained from e.g. prior education or through work.
You need to contact an Adult Education Centre (VUC). Here they will assess through a test, interview or assignment whether your overall competencies correspond to the required level in a given subject. If your skills correspond to the specific admission requirement, you will receive a certificate that documents your qualifications.
Please note: This is not an option in regards to the requirement of English at Danish B-level due to the grade requirement.
Exemption from the specific admission requirements
You may be able to apply for an exemption from one or more of the specific admission requirements.
You can apply for an exemption, if you have completed other educational qualifications that are comparable to the specific admission requirements you lack.
How to apply for an exemption from the specific admission requirements
You must upload an application for an exemption in addition to the required documents stated in step 4.
You must submit the following in order to apply for an exemption:
- a separate statement in which you state based on which course(s) you apply for the exemption and argue why the course(s) are comparable
- relevant course descriptions in English
You must upload the application for an exemption from the specific admission requirements at optagelse.dk by the application deadline of 15 March at 12 noon CET.
How your application is assessed
Your application is reviewed at the relevant bachelor’s programme when they receive your application for admission. If they assess that you have other academic qualifications that are comparable to the specific admission requirements, you can be granted an exemption.
Since all applications for an exemption are individually assessed on a case-by-case basis, it is not possible tell you beforehand if you will be granted an exemption.
Please note that an exemption from the specific requirement cannot be granted, if you for some reason (e.g. due to illness or if your upper secondary school does not offer the subject at the required subject level) have not been able to pass the subject(s) required in order to fulfil the specific admission requirements.
