In the field of Science and Technology there were 5 412 applicants. Of these, 3 221 were first priority applicants, which means a 15% increase. The number of applicants includes applicants who apply based on Open University studies and MAOL-competitions, and also the 723 applicants who applied for the English-speaking Bachelor’s Programme in Science and Technology. The number of first priority applicants increased the most, over 25 %, for Computer Science.

In the field of Art and Design we saw 2 041 applicants. Of these, 1 539 were first priority applicants, which means a 15% increase there as well.  The number of first priority applicants increased the most, 20%, for interior architecture.

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.
