Do you meet the entry requirements?
First and foremost, you have to make sure that you meet the entry requirements for the bachelor programme for which you wish to apply.
Here is a list of entry requirements for the different bachelor programmes under Specific Entry Requirements

If you have a non-Danish upper secondary education, you must check whether you meet the entry requirements on the list of standard assessments under Standard Assessments (indsæt link: https://www.cbs.dk/en/study/bachelor/undergraduate-admission-step-1)

If you do not meet the entry requirements...
If you do not meet the entry requirements, there are different ways to meet them by taking a test or take the course as a upper secondary supplementary course.

English language test:
If you do not meet the language requirements for the study programme for which you wish to apply and you find that your level of proficiency corresponds to the required level, you can take a language test. Please note that you must take the test no later than 24 June. Read more about the language test.

Mathematics during the summer holiday:
Mathematics is the only course you can supplement after 5 July. If you study mathematics during the summer holiday, please remember:

  • to write it in your application on optagelse.dk
  • to upload a confirmation that you have signed up for a mathematics course on optagelse.dk no later than 5 July 12:00 noon.
  • to upload documentation that you have passed the mathematics course no later than 15 September, 12:00 noon.


When is professional experience eligible for assessment in quota 2?
You need at least 30 hours per week on average for at least one month in the same job for your professional experience to be part of the assessment in quota 2. If you have two jobs and work 10 hours in one and 20 hours in another, they are, unfortunately, not eligible for assessment through quota 2.  All types of professional experience are assessed equally, so it does not matter whether you work in a shop, a kindergarten or in an office.

Will you need to write a motivational essay?
Some programmes require a motivational essay, when you apply through quota 2. This is in fact the most important part of your quota 2 application, so we recommend that you spend plenty of time and energy on writing it.
