Last minute increase in number MSc students
According to Jeanine Hermans, Dean for international students, the increase over the last month is mainly due to the newest programme Tourism, Recreation & Leisure. With 17 students this has immediately become one of the biggest programmes. The total number of new students might even reach 200, due to last minute registrations and the additional students for the Geographical Information Systems and Urban Environmental Management programmes, who will arrive later this term.
30% of the students are from Africa, 32% from Europe, 29% from Asia, 6% from Latin America and the remaining 3% are from Canada, New Zealand and the United States of America. 30% of the students are female, 70% male.
