What should you do if you are denied your choice of study?
Every 4 is rejected at their first choice of study.
There are several records in study recorded for 2016. Both the number of applicants and the number entering. The number of rejected applicants also experienced only a slight decline on a less than 1% compared to last year, but it is still a very high figure.
Compared to 2015, there are 1,138 more who have come into higher education.
In total, 94,744 sought into higher education in 2016, which is 2 percent more than the year before. Unfortunately, only 66,439 Danes who have come into their dream education so every 4th Dane had to find an alternative solution.
Why rejected so many?
There may be many reasons why so many are rejected. One of the most obvious reasons is that there is just no room on the respective education because they are very popular and there are not enough resources to handle the many students.
Another reason may be that if a particular subject or training area has gotten a lot of attention in the media, pales many other subjects and therefore sought in the common areas that most people know and therefore many rejected.
It may also be that young students do not know what they want and therefore just choose a random area because they do not want to take a sabbatical or because they feel pressured to take a course of their entourage.
But besides the obvious opportunities for grounds for refusal are also some regulatory circumstances that are unlikely to play a major role. Including notably the increased demands on the students. The increased demands for higher average means that fewer are able to enter their dreams of study if they have achieved these characters. It also increases the pressure on the students and gives them stress.
Half of the candidates do not meet the conditions to be admitted to the program, or have a qualifying exam to be admitted. Therefore, for many applicants may be beneficial to take some additional courses so you can apply again next year.

Among other things, the training very much in demand despite the adversities reform and cutbacks, it has had for a long time. This year (2016) there are 14% more applicants than last year. The high figure is probably that there will be a shortage of teachers, but also because there were so few applicants last year, then there is little to create a growth area.
Additionally disciplines as engineers also very popular. The number of applicants for the Bachelor increased by 12% and the master program by 9%.
