The number of first years in the 2015/2016 academic year will be about seven percent more than this year, it would appear from the preliminary registrations up to 20 April.
The figures could change a bit as the deadline for preliminary registration is 1 May. The intake of new students has been growing for several years in a row. Management, Economics and Consumer Studies looks set to be the biggest programme, with 137 registrations. Food Technology, Nutrition and Health and Biology are also well above the 100 mark. There are significant falls in student numbers for Tourism (a joint degree with the vocational university NHTV in Breda) and Landscape Architecture and Planning.
