If you are offered a seat on the MSc in Digital Innovation and Management or MSc in Digital Design and Interactive Technologies, but do not meet the admission requirements concerning programming or database skills, you will be conditionally admitted and you must pass the mandatory programming test on 2 August 2019 (or re-test 16 August 2019) in order to fully enroll in your MSc programme.
Prior to the mandatory test, ITU strongly recommends that you participate in the optional Qualification Seminar during July.
When participating in the Qualification Seminar, you should expect to follow classes, work on exercises, study on your own and prepare for the test. You can expect to spend 37 hours a week in July. The classes are conducted in Danish, but trial test and the final test will be in English. The Seminar will take place at the IT University of Copenhagen.
During the Qualification Seminar you will learn to program in Python and you will be introduced to imperative programming, object-oriented programming and handling of text data (non-exhaustive list). If these concepts are new to you, please keep in mind that the purpose of the seminar is to help you gain these skills. We do not expect you to have any previous experience with programming. The Qualification Seminar is tailored to provide you with the programming skills necessary to pass the test and the skills required to be fully admitted to the MSc in Digital Innovation and Management or MSc in Digital Design and Interactive Technologies.
If you already know programming, but you do not have any certificate of your skills, you can take the test in August without following the seminar.
