Feb 19, 2015 | Education

The statistics for the number of international applicants to MDH in the January admission round is now available. The numbers are showing a 57 percent increase to our first-cycle educations, and the number of applicants who chose MDH as their first priority has gone up with 47 percent.

The programmes on first-cycle (Bachelor’s) level (Analytical Finance, International Business Management and Scandinavian Studies) have a 57 percent increase in the number of international applicants. The total number of applicants that chose one of these educations as their first priority has increased with 47 percent compared to last year.

The single biggest increase is for Analytical Finance, displaying as much as 65,5 percent more applicants totally.

The programmes on second-cycle (Master’s) level are displaying a 17 percent decrease in the number of international “first priority” applications. The total decrease in the number of applicants to our Master’s programmes is three percent compared to 2014.

All programmes and courses are still open for late applications on universityadmissions.se and students from within EU/EEA also have the possibility to apply during the national application period.

Paul Pettersson, Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Chair of the International Council at MDH, about the increase:
“A greater number of foreign students at MDH is positive both for students and staff, as it contributes to making the university more international.”, he says.
