Last week we welcomed around 1,300 new students to LTH and Lund University. Like last year, we have had many more applicants than we can accommodate. The difference this year is that we had more last minute drop-offs, which meant that we were able to offer places to some of the students on the reserves list.
We don’t yet have the full picture, but we will eventually end up with the number of students we specified in our action plan earlier this year. We would have liked to increase the number of students, but unfortunately that is not possible within the financial limits that Lund University and the Ministry of Education have imposed on us. We have seen a small increase in the number of female students, which we are delighted about.
