Educational background

Danish applicants must have at least English B or equivalent. Other requirements are the same as for the Danish programme.

Non-Danish applicants must apply for admission on the same terms as Danish applicants. They are eligible for admission if they have either a Danish qualifying examination or qualifications recognised or assessed as being comparable to the Danish entrance qualifications.

See which specific requirements you need to fulfil based on your educational background.

Business Academy Aarhus recognises the IB as a qualifying examination on equal terms with a Danish qualifying examination. Besides the qualifying examination, certain other requirements must also be met.

Specific requirements

In order to be admitted to the programme, you must have especially good and documented qualifications in:

English

All international applicants must hold a certificate showing adequate qualifications in English at upper level comparable to English level B of a Danish upper secondary examination.

In addition, they must pass an internationally approved test. We accept these tests with the following minimum scores:

  • IELTS: 6.0
  • TOEFL Internet based: 80
  • TOEFL Paper based: 550
  • Cambridge test: CAE A, B or C
  • Oxford Placement test: 140 (min. 70 in each part)
  • Oxford Online Placement test: B2 (min. 70 in each part)

For non-EU applicants we only accept IELTS and TOEFL.

Native English speakers and applicants with Nordic entrance exams (including applicants with a qualifying examination from USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Scotland, or Ireland) are exempt from an English test. Please note that applicants with a qualifying examination from all other countries (including African and Asian countries, where the language of instruction is English) must submit a test.

If you have a Danish-language entrance exam (or another nordic entrance exam), you must have at least English B or equivalent.

Mathematics

Mathematics at the Danish C-level. This means that international applicants must have had mathematics for at least 125 hours (classes of less than 60 minutes, must be converted into whole hours) during the last three years of their upper-secondary education.

Chemistry

Chemistry at the Danish C-level. This means that international applicants must have had chemistry for at least 75 hours (classes of less than 60 minutes, must be converted into whole hours) during the last three years of their upper-secondary education.
