Other basis for admission
If you do not fulfill the official admission requirements, but have other qualifications which can be equated to the admission requirements, you can apply for admission through an Individual Competence Assessment (ICA)
If your grade average is below 7.0 on Danish grade scale, or the average is unknown, or your average cannot be converted to the Danish grade scale, or you apply through an individual competence assessment, you must attend an interview to qualify for admission to the programme.
The goal of the admission interview is an individual screening of your suitability for study in relation to both academics and profession.
When we have assessed your application, you will receive more information on how to book an interview.
