Important dates

First admission round
The first admissions round is specifically for international students

Second admission round
The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester.


Provide application documents

For the Master’s programmes in Environmental Science please attach a motivation letter.

You also need to provide documention of all of your previous higher education studies. This means you need to provide documentation of your completed degree(s), and transcripts with courses and grades.
You also need to show you meet the English requirement. Some applicants meet the requirement based on previous studies, while others demonstrate their English ability by submitting English test results.

Much of what you need to submit – and how – is based on where you completed your studies. Read more on
