In the cover letter you should point out your personal motivation for choosing to study Global Business Informatics or Data Science. It should also include your thoughts about how your own qualifications and experiences can be valuable for this particular programme. Overall, we would like information about why you wish to study this specific bachelor programme, why you are eligible to study this programme and if you have any areas you wish to work with in the future. A key word is that the information is specific rather than general and relates to Global Business Informatics or Data Science.
The cover letter must be written in English and be of maximum one A4 page. Enclose your cover letter with your application form.
Curricula Vitae (CV)
You must also enclose a CV with your application. The CV should merely be a list of your qualifications, i.e. examinations passed, courses completed and other relevant activities, e.g. jobs (paid or voluntary), army service or travelling.
Admission criteria quota 3
Your application will be subject to an overall evaluation of your grade point average (GPA), qualifications, and suitability to study. Your grades in English, Mathematics, your total grade point average as well as your cover letter are included in the evaluation. From these, the IT University performs an assessment of the applicant’s possibility of completing the programme with a good result.
Submitting your documentation
When you apply in quota 3 you must submit your application and ALL of the documentation no later than 15 March via www.optagelse.dk. This means that your application will not be assessed in quota 3, if you graduate from your qualifying examination after the 15 March the year you apply for admission.
The IT University will send of letters of acceptance or rejection at the end of May. If you are accepted, you must pay the tuition fee before programme start.
When you apply for a bachelor’s programme via www.optagelse.dk without a Danish CPR number and NemID, you have to send a signature page for each programme you apply for. The IT University cannot process your application, before receiving the signature page. You have to scan the signature page and send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The IT University must receive your signature page within the application deadline.
