Documentation of your current English language level
If English is not your first language, you will need to provide documentation of your English language level. VIA University College requires that you have an English level of B2 or higher (certificate is required).
As documentation we accept the following internationally recognized language tests: the TOEFL test, the TOEIC test, the IELTS test or the Cambridge ESOL test.
Required test scores:
||An average band score of 6.0
|Cambridge ESOL tests
||CAE, C grade
|IB (International Baccalaureate)
English B SL, minimum grade 5
English B HL, all grades
If you are an international student who does not meet the required language skills, you may also choose to sit for VIA University College's English Language Assessment Test (VIAT/e).
Find further information about VIAT/e.
Applicants who are native speakers or have proof of secondary school education from the UK, Australia, the USA, Canada and New Zealand are exempt from the English language admission requirements.
Applicants from Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Finland do not need to be tested in English for the English speaking study programmes. Their high school diploma will be converted to Danish grade levels and they will then be assessed and admitted according to the requirements for Danish applicants.
Each semester contains a complete and partial learning sequence with its own exams. That means it is possible for foreign students to complete parts of the study programme with documented equivalent qualifications from a foreign educational institution.
