Sprogkrav

Du skal dokumentere dansk på A-niveau for at opnå en studieplads på Humanfysiologi.
Har du en nordisk gymnasial eksamen skal du ikke dokumentere dansk på A-niveau, da nordiske sprog sidestilles.

Du skal også dokumentere engelsk på B-niveau med et vægtet gennemsnit på minimum 3 eller Engelsk A med et vægtet gennemsnit på minimum 2 for at opfylde uddannelsens adgangskrav.

Applicants with reserved access

If you have reserved access to the programme that you are applying for you are not required to document your proficiency in English.

All other applicants

All other applicants must document qualifications on par with the Danish upper secondary school ‘English level B' with an average weighted score of 3 or ‘English level A’ with a weighted average of minimum 2 on the Danish grading scale.

We accept the following  ways of documenting this:

1) You have studied a full degree in English

An English taught qualifying upper secondary school diploma, Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree from USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK or Ireland will exempt you from the language requirement. A student exchange semester/year will not exempt you from the language requirement.

2) English proficiency

If you have not studied a full degree in English you must:

  • Either document that you have passed Danish upper secondary school 'English level B' (Engelsk B) with the minimum weighted average grade of 3 on the Danish grading scale
  • Or document that you have passed Danish upper secondary school ‘English level A’ (Engelsk A) with the minimum weighted average grade of 2 on the Danish grading scale
  • Or document that you are holding a Nordic entrance examination with an English level which is considered comparable to a Danish B level in English by the Danish Agency of International Education. And with a weighted grade comparable to at least 3 on the Danish grading scale See a comparison of the Nordic subject levels and grades: Nordic subject levels (in Danish)

Or you must pass an IELTS Academic, TOEFL, Cambridge Advanced English or Cambridge English: Proficiency (CPE) test.
