English language tests
You can document your English proficiency using a language test. SDU accepts the following tests if the test is no more than two years old:
- TOEFL IBT test with a score of at least 88. In order for us to validate your result, we will receive a score report directly from the test center. To select SDU as a recipient, use the code 7969. Select “other – department not listed”. If you have already taken the test, you can still request the test center to submit the result. Please inform us when you have made such a request.
- IELTS academic test with an overall score of at least 6.5
- CAE test with grade C or better (test is accepted only from a Cambridge Network). In order for us to validate your result, please provide us with your ID number (e.g. EPA123456) and your secret number (4 digits)
- CPE from the University of Michigan
English at secondary level
If you have a diploma from a country within the EU / EEA, from the Nordic countries or from Switzerland, you may be able to document your English proficiency using your upper secondary school diploma. Along with your proof, upload a document from your school that indicates the number of English lessons in the last three years of your secondary education. The document must be drawn up in English. We will then assess if your English from high school corresponds to a Danish B level. We encourage you to send your papers via SPOC for an advance assessment.
If your entire bachelor’s degree is taken in the United States, Canada (English speaking part), Australia, New Zealand, UK or Ireland, no additional documentation is required. This only applies if the entire education is taken in one of these countries. If you have taken your education as a fourth degree, you are not exempt.
If you have an English-language bachelor’s degree program from Denmark, you are also excluded from the further documentation. However, we need a confirmation from your educational institution, where it is stated that the education is in English.
