Out of the choices offered at the University of Debrecen, just like last year, the Faculty of Economics has been taken by the highest number (250) of applicants. Runners-up in popularity included the Faculty of Health (120 applications), the Faculty of Education for Children and Special Education Needs (117 applications), and the Faculty of Public Health (87 applications).
As regards individual majors, the largest number of applications (65) have been received for studying Special Education Needs at the Faculty of Education for Children and Special Education Needs. However, the Nursing and Patient Care major (47), the Dietitian Specialization of the Nursing and Patient Care major established at the Szolnok Campus (42), and the Commerce and Marketing program (40) also proved to be popular with those taking supplementary entrance exams.
For the supplementary exams altogether, there have been a total of 655 applications submitted for bachelor’s degrees, 87 for master’s, 68 for undivided (5-year) programs, and 108 for higher education degree programs. It was also possible to apply for state funded scholarship programs this time, and the number of applications received for this was 372, while the self-financed forms were chosen by 546 applicants at the University of Debrecen.
