Approximately 12.000 international prospective students applied to the numerous Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes on offer. In addition to these English-taught programmes, the joint application round also included the studies offered by the University of the Arts.

Overall, the number of applicants is still on the rise, since some English-taught degree programmes have a separate applications system whereby individual universities accept applications outside the joint application.

The most popular study options in this year's joint application were in business, administration and law, arts and culture, and information and communication technologies.

During the next few months, the higher education institutions will be busy with the student selection processes. Accepted applicants will be automatically informed via e-mail. Additional information for those who have applied is available on the Studyinfo website.

Good luck to all those who applied!
