Admission requirements

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

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

English requirements

All applicants must have a certificate proving adequate qualifications in English at an upper level which is comparable to English level B of a Danish upper secondary examination.

This means that international applicants must have had English for at least 210 hours during the last three years of their upper-secondary education (classes of less than 60 minutes, must be converted into whole hours).

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

  • IELTS: 6,5 *
  • TOEFL: 83 *
  • Cambridge C1 Advanced: 180 (formerly known as Cambridge English Advanced: Grade A, B or C)
  • Cambridge C2 Proficiency: 200
  • Oxford Online Placement test: C1 (min. 85 in each part). We only accept this test, when it is completed at Business Academy Aarhus. Sign up here

Please note that the English test is valid for 2 years.

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

Native English speakers, applicants with an IB Diploma and applicants with Nordic entrance exams (including applicants with a qualifying examination from the 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.
