Selection procedure

The selection procedure aims to assess how well prospective students match our MSc programs.

DTU will be prioritizing applicants based on their academic background at the bachelor level, motivation and goals to pursue the MSc program, and skill-sets they will bring to the University.

What does it mean to be on a waiting list?

If you’re on the waiting list, it means you are already a competitive candidate and have the potential to complete the MSc program you have applied for. It is important to note that being on the waiting list is not a guarantee of receiving an offer of admission.

If you want to remain on the waiting list, you must accept the offer made to you through the application portal within the specified deadlines.
