Marketing is the most attractive. The most popular programmes at both first- and second-cycle level are found within this subject.
"It feels great that so many international students choose Linnaeus University. The number of first-choice applicants has also increased, which is even more satisfactory", says Magnus Källström, section manager for student recruitment.
Linnaeus University has 2,522 first-choice applicants to programmes at second-cycle level. An increase with 33 percent. And 2,832 first-choice applicants to programmes at first-cycle level and single-subject courses, which is an increase with 23 percent.
"Evidently we offer an attractive range of courses and programmes. We have also had particular focus on certain countries and participated at education fairs on location. It feels great to see that these efforts are paying off", says Magnus Källström.
