Back on the growth track from before corona

Rector Anne Storm Rasmussen is pleased with the numbers.

‘We are back on the growth track from before corona – the total application number is somewhat higher than in 2019 and 2020. 2021 was unusually high, 2022 perhaps as a consequence, unusually low, and now we are growing again in 2023,’ says Anne Storm Rasmussen.

Many hopefuls want to study Multimedia Design and Computer Science (in Danish)

In some programmes, there is a significant increase. For example, 52 percent more than last year have put the Danish Multimedia Design programme as their 1st priority. The Danish computer science programme was also more popular, with 35 per cent more 1st priority applications. The English version of the Multimedia Design programme has also increased from last year with 332 hopeful students applying, this is up 16% compared to last year.

Admitted or not?

The 5th of July is the deadline for Danish and international students who are currently attending an upper secondary school in Denmark. This is known as quota 1, and applicants are admitted according to their average marks from their upper secondary exams, whereas quota 2 assesses not only the average marks but also other criteria, which vary from programme to programme.

On 28 July, the number of study places will be distributed among the many applicants. By then, the Academy will usually have received more than 6,000 applications and around 2,500 will be offered a study place.
