To be successful in your studies at RDAM, we recommend students to have an English level equivalent to a score of 5.5 IELTS. Find information on the IELTS levels here.
We recommend prospective students who are not fluent in English to engage in English language practice prior to their enrolment.
DOCUMENTING YOUR ENLISH LANGUAGE SKILLS
The Academy encourages applicants who are not native English speakers to document their level of English by submitting relevant documents, for example an official test result or a completed English course in the online application.
As a part of the application process, the International Office may invite the applicants to do an online interview in order to assess the applicant’s level of English.
LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS FROM THE DANISH IMMIGRATION AUTHORITIES
The Danish Immigration Authorities require that international students speak and understand the language of instruction.
When students apply for a residence permit, The Danish diplomatic mission may invite applicants for an interview to determine if their level of English is good enough to participate in an English taught course at an institution of higher education.
