All complete applications are assessed by a jury consisting of the Programme Director and representatives from the department. They assess which portfolios are approved and not. The applicants whose portfolios are not approved will get a message on saying they are unqualified.
The jury selects a number of the approved applicants who are called for an interview. After the interviews the jury ranks the applicants. If you are not called for an interview, you will get a message on saying your application is unqualified.

Your academic qualifications are assessed by the University’s Admissions Office.  If you do not fit the entry requirement, your application is made unqualified.  
If you are not formally qualified the jury has the possibility of making exemptions from the formal requirements, if they have ranked your portfolio high and consider ypur background to be equal that of the required Bachelor’s degree. This is done on the initiative of the jury and you cannot ask for this assessment to be made.
