Disclaimer

To enrol students in courses, the ISUP secretariat needs valid documentation and full tuition fee paid on time (see below under fees and costs). If you apply in the first application round, but do not transfer full tuition fee (tuition fee including all bank transaction fees) by the first application round deadline, we will not assign courses to you and you will be considered second round applicant. If we have not received the tuition fee by the end of the second application deadline, your application will be rejected.

Please investigate your needs and options carefully and choose your ISUP courses on a well-informed basis:

  • Once your course registration has been confirmed by the ISUP secretariat, you will not be able to change your registration. This will also apply in the event that you are notified by CBS Admissions that you need other courses in order to be admitted to CBS.
  • You can only withdraw from the programme and have the tuition fee refunded under certain conditions:
    • You withdraw from the programme before 1 June 2018
    • You have been rejected to a graduate programme at CBS
    • The completion of the courses is not listed as a condition for your acceptance to a graduate programme at CBS

Please note that fulfilment of ISUP requirements does not entail fulfilment of the entry requirements for full-time programmes at CBS. In addition, enrolment at ISUP courses does not guarantee admission to full-time programmes at CBS.

The ISUP course offer is subject to student interest and enrolment. Due to unforeseen circumstances there might be changes to the course offer which will be communicated without delay.

Prerequisites

Course prerequisites

Make sure that you fulfil the prerequisites stated in the course catalogue, for the course(s) you wish to apply for, before you apply. Please note that it is your own responsibility to make sure that you fulfil the course prerequisites.

Requirements

Academic level

ISUP courses are regular university courses taught in English at either undergraduate or graduate level and therefore, it is strongly recommended that only students with good academic standing apply. It is the students' own responsibility to make sure that they are able to follow the courses and pass the exams.

Level of English Proficiency

ISUP students are not required to submit any proof of English proficiency. Since all courses are taught in English and at a high academic level, it is highly recommended to have a strong command in both oral and written English, otherwise it might be difficult to follow the courses and pass the exams. The ISUP secretariat recommends all students to have an English proficiency corresponding to any of the tests and certificates listed below;

  • IELTS academic test result of at least 7.0
  • Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English passed
  • Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English passed
  • TOEFL iBT test result of at least 91
  • TOEFL paper-based test result of at least 577
  • TOEFL ITP institutional test done at CBS with a score of at least 577

Eligibility

  • Bachelor students at any year of their bachelor programme are able to apply for undergraduate courses
  • Bachelor students with adequate pre-requisites are allowed to take graduate courses*
  • Master students may also apply for undergraduate courses
  • Professionals may apply both for graduate and undergraduate courses

* Bachelor students applying in ISUP's application system will only be shown undergraduate/bachelor courses as standard. If bachelor students wish to take graduate/master courses, they should choose random undergraduate courses, write in the "Applicant notes" what graduate courses they would like to choose instead, and we will change them manually in the system.

Course selection

Selecting courses

  • Read the course descriptions in the course catalogue very carefully to make sure that you fulfil the course prerequisites
  • To make sure there are no time conflicts between your courses, please check the course and exam timetables in the section Courses and exams.
  • Students can maximum take two courses at ISUP (max 15 ECTS) since the workload per course amounts to 206 hours (the workload for two courses is more than a full time job)
  • Please note the type of exam for each course. A "home assignment/mini project" exam run in parallel with the course and will start on the first day of teaching and the research question for the home assignment/mini project must be handed in to the course instructor no later than 12 July 2018 and approved by the course instructor no later than 17 July 2018, read more under the exam section under Courses and exams. All the exams of the type "home assignment/mini project" will take place simultaneously. That means your exam submissions must be handed in on the same day and time. If you do not wish to have two simultaneous home assignments/mini projects, please choose other courses with another exam type. Neither the time nor the exam type will be changed.
  • Please note that it is not possible to switch courses once the application rounds are closed. We will overbook all courses in relation to the number of seats in each course. So even if someone else withdraws, this will not leave a seat to be filled.
  • For students taking supplementary courses for graduate admission at CBS: Please investigate your needs and options carefully and choose your ISUP courses on a well-informed basis:
    • Once your course registration has been confirmed by the ISUP secretariat, you will not be able to change your registration. This will also apply in the event that you are notified by CBS Admissions that you need other courses in order to be admitted to CBS.
