Roelof Kleis

Next year Wageningen will have three Bachelor’s programmes with a cap on enrollments.

The application to set limits for Biotechnology and Molecular Life Sciences has been accepted by minister of Education Jet Bussemaker. The Nutrition and health programme already has an enrollment cap. The limit for Biotechnology for next academic year has been set at 120 first-years, 11 fewer than started this year. For Molecular Life Sciences the limit is 100 students for next year. This year the programme attracted 85 first-years. The limit for Nutrition and Health next year is 160 students. This year 149 were admitted, but twice as many could have come, based on the number who registered.
