Documentation for level B English
You need to document an English language proficiency of at least level B (Danish high school levels) in one of the following ways:
- You have passed a level B English exam in the course of taking a Danish high school exam (or through supplementary courses)
- You have taken a relevant English test with a certain score. The test cannot be more than 2 years old
Requirements for the English test:
TOEFL paper-based test result: 560 minimum
TOEFL IBT test result: 88 minimum
IELTS (academic) test result: 6.5 minimum
Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English: passed
Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English: passed
- You have taken an English-language high school exam or bachelor’s degree in Denmark, in another EU country, Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, USA, Canada, South Africa, Australia or New Zealand.
- You have a qualifying bachelor’s degree from a Danish university (not a professional bachelor’s degree).
It is possible to apply before you have completed any necessary language proficiency test or supplementary courses. Instead, you must then upload documentation for being called to the test or being admitted to the course. No later than one month before study start, you must upload the results of the test or supplementary course in the application portal. If your result does not comply with the admission requirements, your admission will be annulled. Applicants who are not EU/EEA (EØS) citizens and who have to pay tuition fees will need to upload the results of the language proficiency test or supplementary course no later than 3 weeks after the application deadline.
The university code for TOEFL is 9015. You will need this code when you sign up for a TOEFL test. No code is needed for IELTS.
Copy of diploma, including transcript of your grades, from your qualifying education
If your qualifying education is a combination of several educations, you will have to send a diploma and transcript of your grades for each separate education. A combined education could for example be a multimedia design or a computer science education as top-up degrees from a bachelor’s degree.
Documentation for having passed elements of a master education
If you have previously been enrolled on a higher education on a master level, without completing it, it is your duty to upload documentation for any elements of the education that you have passed. This documentation will be used to assess whether to give you a starting credit for some of these elements.
Have you previously passed a Danish education on an equivalent or higher level?
If you have previously passed a Danish full-time master-level education, or another Danish full-time education on an equivalent or higher level, you will, as a rule, not be admitted to a new full-time master level education.
You can apply for an exemption from this rule if:
- A minimum of 6 years have passed between the completion of your previous education and study start on the new education
- We assess that, for health reasons, you cannot use your completed education on the work market
- We assess that your previously completed education has changed drastically or no longer exists
If you have not yet completed your qualifying education
If you have not yet completed your qualifying education, you will need to upload an updated transcript of your grades. If you are missing more than 60 ECTS to complete your education, you will also have to give an account of how you expect to complete the education before study start at ITU. If you are taking a foreign qualifying education, and if ECTS are not shown on the transcript, your institution will also need to confirm your expected completion time.
Only for non-EU/EEA (EØS) citizens with permanent residence permit in Denmark
Non-EU/EEA (EØS) citizens who reside in Denmark, and who wish to be exempt from paying tuition fees on their master level education, must send in documentation of their permanent residence permit or their residence permit with the possibility of permanent residence.
Foreign qualifying education
Foreign diplomas that are neither in English nor in one of the Scandinavian languages must be translated into Danish or English by the educational institution, an authorized translator or a public authority. If you are admitted, you must also show your original diploma at study start.
If you have questions concerning the application procedure, please contact Student Affairs and Programmes.
It is also always a good idea to contact the Study and Career Guidance before you apply, if you have any unanswered questions or other doubts.
