High number of quota 2 applicants for engineering degree programmes at AU

Aarhus University is once again experiencing a surge of quota 2 applicants to its engineering degree programmes.

Aarhus University has received 448 first-choice applications for the university's engineering degree programmes. The preliminary figures are good reading for Finn Borchsenius, vice-dean at the Faculty of Technical Sciences:

"We’re continuing to see a great interest in our engineering programmes, and we hope that we can offer study places to the vast majority of applicants," says Finn Borchsenius.

The numbers reveal a huge interest in IT-related engineering programmes and civil and structural engineering programmes.

In the summer of 2023, AU Engineering admitted 1,177 new engineering students and had to reject qualified applicants for the first time in its history.

A popular university

Aarhus University has received more than 7,000 first-choice applications (12 per cent more than last year). The figures for the total number of quota 2 applications and the break-down by degree programme will be available early next week on AU’s press website.

Applicants who apply via quota 2 are not just assessed on their final grade point average, but also on their educational and professional experience, motivation and voluntary activities.

The application deadline for quota 1 is 5 July 2024.

All applicants will be notified on 26 July 2024 if they have been offered a place.
