Application Step-by-Step

To apply to the European Master in Tourism Management please follow steps 1-3 below.

Note: All documents must be saved in pdf format and the name must include applicant's name and surname in the form "name_surname"  (e.g. 1.CV_Joan_Mendez.pdf).

Step 1

Prepare the following required documents in the corresponding formats:

1. Curriculum Vitae (Europass EU format) saved as 1.CV_name_surmane.pdf.

2. Original university diploma scanned and saved as 2a.UD_name_surname.pdf; and, if necessary, also the certified English translation of the diploma saved as 2a. UDtranslation_name_surname.pdf. If you have more than one degree, then follow the same rule but use 2b, 2c,... instead of 2a at the beginning of the file(s) name*.

3. Original academic transcript of course grades scanned and saved as 3a.CT_name_surname.pdf; and, if necessary, also the certified English translation of the transcript saved as 3a.CTtranslation_name_surname.pdf. If you have more than one degree, then follow the same rule but use 3b, 3c,... instead of 3a at the beginning of the file(s) name. The letter used in the name of the transcript file needs to correspond to the letter in the name of the diploma file*.

4. A motivation letter stating the motivation to study in the EMTM programme, professional experience (if any), expectations of the programme and future prospects saved as 4.ML_name_surname.pdf.

5. Proof of competence in English language saved as 5.CE_name_surname.pdf**.

6. Two letters of recommendation scanned and saved as 6a.LR_name_surname.pdf and 6b.LR_name_surname.pdf. The letters must include e-mail, contact address and telephone number of the recommending professor.

7. Scanned copy of a valid passport saved as 7.PC_name_surname.pdf.

For non-EU candidates the expiry date cannot be before December of the year of finishing the EMTM studies. For example, for EMTM 2023-2025 the expiry date has to be minimum December 2025.  It is possible to apply with a passport which does not fulfil this condition. However, it is important to apply for the new passport immediately after receiving the acceptance to the programme. In the case of  applicants from countries where the application for a new passport takes longer than one month, it is highly recommended to apply for the new passport in advance.

Please note that the application for the Danish residency permit takes up to 4 months using a passport valid three months longer than the end of the master's programme.

8. Save any other documents as 8.OD_name_surname.pdf.


Step 2

Prepare a .zip or .rar file including all the above documents in the format or name_surname.rar. Note that the file cannot exceed more than 10MB in total, so please check the size of the files of scanned documents.


Step 3

Apply online and upload the .zip or .rar file containing all the digital copies of the required documents.
