Bachelor’s intake at Aarhus BSS
The applications to Aarhus BSS's bachelor's programmes have overall increased by approx. 15 per cent compared to last year, both in terms of 1st priority applications and the total number of applications. Aarhus BSS has thus received a total of 10,934 applications to its bachelor’s programmes of which 4,160 were 1st priority applications, making it the highest amount since 2016.
Recent years’ general decrease in the proportion of accepted offers of admission on bachelor's programmes has also been mitigated as the number of students who have been offered a study place has increased by 5 per cent and the number of accepted offers increased by 4 per cent compared to the year before. This is the result of the ongoing work to optimise the admissions processes.
Aarhus BSS also experienced an increase in applications from international students and better conversion rates in line with data-driven investment in a number of focus countries. This is expected to contribute to better retention rates and employment in Denmark upon graduation.
At a meeting on 10 October, the executive team, heads of departments, directors of studies and staff members from Aarhus BSS Studies and AU Admissions will meet to discuss the status of this year's admissions and focus points for next year's admissions round.
