To build an interdisciplinary learning environment MSc IHC welcomes applicants with bachelor degrees across a range of business and health disciplines.

Entry requirements

You are qualified for (but not guaranteed) admission to the programme if you:

A) Fulfil the entry requirements below
B) Fulfil the language requirement
C) Have a bachelor degree (or will by study start)

SPECIFIC ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Your educational background will be subject to an overall individual assessment in order to establish if the academic areas listed below are covered in full and as prescribed.

The specific entry requirements are min. 30 ECTS-points within one or more of the following areas:

  • Organisation
  • Quantitative methods
  • Economics
  • IT
  • Epidemiology
  • Human biology
  • Pathology
  • Physiology/anatomy
  • Biochemistry/organic chemistry

Language Requirements

The programme requires English at Danish level B passed with min 3.0.

The English requirements are very strict, which means that only the qualifications listed on the English level B page are accepted as alternative fulfilment.

If you do not fulfil the English requirements at the time of applying, you have until study start to document fulfilment. In other words, you are welcome to apply without fulfilling the English requirement, but you must fulfil the requirements as listed on the English level B page before study start (or 1 June if you are a non-EU citizen and need a student residence permit). If you need to take a language test/exam, your scores must be available to CBS Admissions by this time, however, you must upload a registration for the language test/exam when you apply.

 

Selection criteria

The programme has a limited number of places.

Only applicants fulfilling the specific entry requirements are considered qualified and will be considered in the selection process.

If there are more qualified applicants than places available, selection criteria will be applied. You are subject to an overall assessment of your academic background at undergraduate level with a focus on:

  • Analytical skills and experience with social science methodology
  • Grades and relevance of educational background at undergraduate level
  • Motivation given in motivational essay (see below)

Motivational essay
A motivational essay must be personal and specific, and it must prove that you are well-informed and that you have put a lot of thought into your choice of education. It should also explain your purpose and motivation for choosing this particular programme. You may want to consider the following when writing your motivational essay:

  • Reasoning your motivation for choosing the programme
  • Explaining exactly why this particular programme is the right one for you
  • Elaborating on what you can contribute to the programme and why
  • Highlighting any extra-curricular activities/pro bono work/work experience that you believe to be especially relevant
  • Your motivation for studying in Denmark, familiarity with Danish society and affiliation to the Danish labour market

Your motivational essay may not exceed two A4 pages and must be written in English.


Your exact academic background determines which of the following quotas you belong to:

Quota 1: Applicants with a bachelor degree within public health

Quota 2: Applicants with a bachelor degree within the social sciences (including business administration)

Quota 3: Applicants with a bachelor degree within health science

Quota 4: Applicants with a bachelor degree within sciences (including natural sciences, technical sciences and the humanities)

Quota 5: Dispensees. If you do not have a bachelor degree, you are considered a dispensee and will be subject to an individual assessment. As a HD part II you are considered a dispensee.

Do you already have a master's degree?
Part of the selection criteria is whether or not you already have a Danish Master’s degree. A completed Master's degree can be a disadavantage in the overall assessment. If you have a completed Master's degree from a country other than Denmark, this does not apply to you.

Note that applicants with a completed Danish Master's degree can only enrol in a new degree programme in certain circumstances (see the rules under "Previous studies at Master's level") and even if you are an exception to the rule, this can be disadvantageous.
