Danish Universities apparently want to help the economy by expanding their class rooms and courses to accommodate more Danish applicants. Latest data out of Saturday show that a record number of students have been admitted to various courses at different schools of higher learning in the country.

For the first time ever, the number of admitted students at Danish universities touched about 25,000.
“I am incredibly happy with the new figures. It is very positive, because we need highly skilled young people looking in the future,” says Danish Science Minister Charlotte Sahl-Madsen.


The total intake into various university bachelor's degrees programs for 2011 was some 25,548 students, which is 2518 more than in 2010, which was already a record.

Although the students who have been admitted are happy, there is still room for substantial improvement, according to vice Rector, Nina Rasmussen.
“It is really encouraging that fewer were already rejected last year. Then there are more happy faces today when their letters were opened, but the number of rejections is still too high,” she says.
