High number of applicants per place this year

The number of applicants to courses and study programmes starting this autumn is at a record high across Sweden. More than 82,000 people have applied for courses and study programmes starting this autumn at the University of Gothenburg, which is more than ever before.

Programmes in the Faculty of Science are no exception. The total number of applicants for first- and second-cycle programmes increased by ten per cent compared with the figures for the 2020 autumn semester. Among the Faculty’s first-cycle programmes, it was the Bachelor of Pharmacy programme that received the most applicants, while among the second-cycle programmes it was the Sea and Society, Master’s Programme that came out on top.

The foundation year programme in the Sciences still remains the Faculty’s most popular programme.
