In the field of Science and Technology there were 4314 applicants. Of these, 3029 were first priority applicants, which means a 11% increase. The number of applicants includes applicants who apply based on Open University studies and MAOL competitions. The programme in Landscape Architecture saw the biggest increase (50%) in the number of applicants, with 78% of them first priority applicants.

In the field of Art and Design there were 1853 applicants. Of these, 1488 were first priority applicants, which means a 10% increase there as well.

All numbers are based on the reports taken from the Studyinfo service right after the application period finished. This means that the number may vary a bit later on when the reports are updated and the handling of applications starts.
