Admission requirements

Admission requires the completion of a Bachelor's or teacher training course in which at least 20 CP in the field of literary studies were acquired. The board of examiners decides on exceptions on the basis of an additional oral examination to be taken before the board of examiners or a commission appointed by it. In these cases, the catching up of missing competences can be made a condition. It is also necessary to have a knowledge of English at level B1 (CEFR) and a knowledge of one of the Romance languages.
