Computer Science, Criminology, English Philology and Psychology are the most popular majors chosen by candidates for the University of Gdańsk. The University has planned to admit nearly 12 thousand people this year. This year's novelties include Interdisciplinary Individual Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and in English - Production of Audiovisual Forms and Quantum Information Technology and Cultural Communication.

- 'Computer Science - with the number of nearly 16 candidates per place - is an absolute "hit" and an undoubted surprise in the current recruitment process. A great interest of candidates caused that the major offered by the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Information Technology joined the "top" of the most popular majors at UG,' - informs Beata Królczyk, head of the Recruitment Office at UG.

She stresses, however, that we will have to wait a bit longer for the final result of the recruitment process. - 'To meet the expectations of this year's high school graduates - as every year - the recruitment schedule was diversified, thanks to which the enrolment process for some of the majors lasted until July 12, while others are still open for this year's candidates for full-time studies of the first degree,' - she adds.
