Admission requirements

STUDENTS WITH A DANISH AP Degree in marketing management 

  • Can apply for admission without further requirements

 

For students with other educational background

  • Students with a passed academy degree (e.g. Service Management, Hospitality and Tourism Management and Financial Management) can apply for admission provided they have made an individual prior learning assessment - PLAR (known as ‘IKV’ in Danish) resulting in a positive result.

An individual prior learning assessment gives you an individual assessment of your collected knowledge, skills and competencies. The assessment will be used in relation to the admission requirements on the study programme that you want to apply to.

You can read more about individual prior learning assessment.

Note, that the deadline for having an PLAR made is no later than 15 June.

If you receive a positive PLAR you should use that as well as your other documents when you apply through the online application.
