How will I be contacted after submission of my online application?
You will receive an e-mail containing a link, if a message is available for you in DANS. When you receive an e-mail concerning a new message, you must follow the link to read the message.
DANS uses the e-mail address that you used when creating your application. If you applied using your NemID, there is an e-mail address associated with your NemID.
If you are unsure which e-mail address is used to communicate with you, you can check it by logging in to the digital application system and open the tab 'See status of applications' and click on 'View application'.
You can see the status of your application and read messages concerning your application by logging on to DANS.

You will be contacted, if any necessary documentation is missing
After you submit your application, the university begins to process your application.
In some cases, we need additional documentation from you - or we have other important messages.
You will often be given a very short deadline to respond to the notification e.g. concerning missing documentation. It is therefore very important that you keep an eye on the messages we send to you in DANS - both before and after the final decision. Therefore, you should make sure to check your e-mail frequently (this also applies if you e.g. are travelling).
If you are asked to upload additional documentation, your application will be unlocked in order for you to submit the documentation to the relevant section of the online application form. The notification concerning the requirement of additional documentation includes a guide on how to upload the documentation.
When to expect a decision
Study start September 1
- Application deadline: March 1
- Decision: May 31
Study start February 1
- Application deadline: September 1
- Decision: November 15
You will receive 1 of the 3 following types of decisions to your application
1) Letter of admission
This means that you fulfil all of the requirements and have been offered a study place at Roskilde University.
If you have applied for admission to more than one master’s programme, you will only receive a letter of admission to the highest priority where you qualify for admission. You will therefore not receive a response concerning your other priority/priorities.
2) Letter of conditional admission
This means that you do not fulfil all of the requirements and you must fulfil certain conditions before you can be offered a study place at Roskilde University. One or more of the following three conditions may apply:
- You may be asked to upload additional documentation, if you have not uploaded all of the required documentation.
- You may be required to complete prerequisite studies at bachelor’s level at Roskilde University in order to qualify for admission to the master’s programme. Please read the information about prerequisite studies. (Please note that this is not an option, if you are a non-EU/EEA citizen that need a residence permit based on studies, as you will not be able to get a residence permit based on this type of studies.)
- If you are a non-EU/EEA citizen, you are required to pay tuition fees - unless you are exempted from this based on their type of residence permit to Denmark or are granted a tuition fee waiver and scholarship.
If you have applied for admission to more than one master’s programme, you will only receive a letter of conditional admission to the highest priority where you qualify for admission. This also applies if it is conditional admission with the requirement of completing prerequisite studies first. You will therefore not receive a response concerning your other priority/priorities, and you cannot change to a lower priority.
3) Letter of rejection
This means that you do not fulfil the admission requirements and cannot be offered admission. The reason of rejection will be stated in the letter of rejection. If you receive a refusal, it is not possible to apply before the next deadline. RUC does not offer vacant study places for the master programmes.
If you have been offered admission or conditional admission, you must
1) Accept or reject the study place
You usually have 1 week from date the letter is sent to respond. Regardless of whether you accept or reject the offer it is important for the University to receive your answer. If the University has not received your acceptance by the deadline, the offer will be annulled. Information on how to do this, will be stated in the admission offer.
2) Upload additional documentation and / or pay tuition fees, if required
If you have been offered conditional admission requesting you to submit additional documentation (e.g. your bachelor’s diploma), the Admissions Office will send a notice in the digital application system asking you to upload the documentation. You will not be able to upload documentation before you receive this notification. There will be some processing time from when you accept the offered study place till we open your application so you can upload the necessary documentation.
If you have been requested to pay tuition fees, you will receive a tuition fee invoice in the digital application system usually a couple of weeks after you have received the offer of conditional admission.
