Record number of applicants in Denmark

Redacción

The number of higher education applicants in 2013 is record high. The preliminary figures show that a total of 88,078 have applied for entry to a higher education programme. That is 7,312 more than the former record from 2012.

The final number of applicants is made up in the middle of July. Included in this number will be applications from people who have applied without the digital signature NemID plus people who were exempted from applying digitally. Therefore, the final figures will be even higher than the 88,078 applicants.

Minister for Science, Innovation and Higher Education Morten Østergaard is pleased with the increase:

"It is crucial to the future of Denmark that our level of education keeps pace with the development and the demand. Denmark needs innovative young people with ideas and enterprise which can be converted to new solutions and jobs and thereby ensure continued growth and prosperity. The number of applicants this year is a token of our young people being highly motivated for getting an education and a token of us being on the right track with respect to the government’s aim of the best educated generation ever. Therefore, I am very satisfied with the number of applicants," says Morten Østergaard.

It is the first time that all applicants have applied digitally through the optagelse.dk website. This makes it possible to make a preliminary statement about the total number of applicants as early as 5 July.
