Admission to the pre-master’s programme is selective. You will be required to complete a pre-master's programme if our Admissions Board decides that you lack appropriate knowledge to get direct admission to our master programme. This decision is made after careful evaluation of your diplomas and academic portfolio, proof of proficiency in English, and affinity to the subject of the master’s programme. A pre-master's programme is tailor-made, for each applicant individually, by our Admissions Board.

This is the overview of all the courses offered within the pre-master programme in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology (CA-DS). Since each pre-master packeage is individualley composed, the pre-master students follow different courses. The size of different pre-master programmes can vary.
