Your application is registered at the International Office of the Faculties of Humanities and Theology. It is then passed on to the study advisor at your department/division who e.g checks your application to ensure that you qualify for exchange studies. If a large number of students have applied from a certain programme/subject, the study advisor does a ranking of your qualifications.
It takes approximately four weeks before you receive a decision on nomination. You will be notified by email.
The decision on nomination is based on a combination of the following ranking criteria.
- Study result - academic education and grades.
- Goals and motivation - Statement of Purpose.
- Experiences and activities which are deemed relevant for you to succeed in your exchange studies and/or benefit from the stay abroad - CV.
- If the studies can be deemed relevant for your education.
- The International Office of the Faculties of Humanities and Theology obtains statements from the students’ departments before ranking the applicants. This statement is also important for the final nomination decision.
- Some importance is attached to how common the subject is – applicants with fewer credits from an under-represented subject can sometimes be ranked higher than someone with more credits.
- Students who have already completed a Bachelor’s degree course in a subject, who are applying for advanced studies in that subject abroad, are not automatically ranked higher.
- The final decision on admission is taken by the receiving university abroad.
