Application and requirements

Admission requirements

The admission requirement for the Master's degree programme in Culture, Communication and Globalization is a completed relevant Bachelor's degree. A Bachelor's degree is considered relevant if its central subjects provide the student with competences which are equivalent to at least 30 ECTS within one or more subject areas of the CCG programme, i.e. international and/or intercultural relations, communication relevant to the scope of the CCG programme, consumption and market communication, organisation and management, international relations and the global order, international migration and ethnic relations.

In addition, documented education within the methodologies of the humanities or social sciences is required.


Bachelor’s degrees from AAU which qualify students for direct admission

A bachelor's degree in Language and International Studies, English, from Aalborg University qualifies students for direct admission to the Master's degree programme if admission is in immediate continuation of the completed Bachelor's degree.

Other comparable degrees may qualify for admission, and this will be assessed on an individual basis according to the admission requirements.

 

If you do not meet the requirements for direct admission

 

If your education is not mentioned under the admission requirements, but is related, you can still apply for admission. When you apply, the Study Board will make an individual academic assessment of your qualifications in relation to the specific Master's degree programme.For further information, see the programme’s curriculum.

The Study Board does not pre-assess applications for admission. This means that academic assessments are carried out only when an application for admission is submitted.


Restricted admission to the master's degree programme in Culture, Communication and Globalization

As of 2019, admission will be restricted to the Master's degree programme in Culture, Communication and Globalization, and we expect to admit a total of 93 students.

  • The grade point average of the qualifying Bachelor's degree.
