This means that we are succeeding with our strategic work on study programmes, as well as strengthening our position in the university sector.

The most popular study programmes this year are nursing, teacher training (5th -10th grades), social work, aquaculture and leadership, animal science, real estate, history, and various business programmes. 

Work on international applications to University of Nordland is at present being completed and the figures will be available at the beginning of May.  

- We look forward to receiving our new students in the autumn, says Rector Pål Pedersen who is naturally very pleased about the development of applications to the institution.
