High number of applicants to KI programmes
Last week, the Swedish Council for Higher Education (UHR) released statistics on the number of applicants for education programmes starting in the spring semester of 2023 at Swedish universities and colleges. The statistics show that KI’s medical programme has the second highest number of first-choice applicants among all education programmes in Sweden.
Karolinska Institutet’s (KI) programmes are in demand among prospective students. KI received a total of 12,445 applications to its programmes starting in the spring semester of 2023, of which 4,828 stated that KI’s programmes were their first choice. The number of first-choice applicants to KI’s programmes has decreased slightly compared to the same semester last year, but at the same time, the total number of applicants has increased by more than a thousand.
Medical programme the top choice
Compared to other universities, KI has a high number of applicants. The medical programme stands out as one of the most popular programmes, not only compared to other medical programmes in Sweden, but all programmes in the country. For the spring semester of 2023, KI’s medical programme received the second highest number of first-choice applicants of all programmes in the country, second only to the law programme at Stockholm University. A total of 1,470 applicants named the medical programme at KI as their first choice.
