114 young people into BSc in Food Science education at the UCPH

Many young people decided to continue their education with a bachelor degree in food at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH). A total of 114 new students are offered a study on the Food Science program starting in September 2014, 94 of these did put this education at the top as their first priority.

Net enrollment from the University generally show a slight decrease of 2% compared to 2013. The Food Science education also faces a small decrease among students who have education as a top priority from 96 students in 2013 to now 94 students in 2014. Similarly, the total number of students did fall from 118 in 2013 to 114 of 2014. Yet Head of Department Bjarke Bak Christensen, Department of Food Science has a positive view on the admission numbers:

"We've had record increases in the number of new students the last few years, so the enrollment now should be seen in the context of that 2013 gave the highest
number of new students ever.
It is almost constant number of students we welcome this year. And we stand with 'generation target',
young people who know what they want, so it seems very good that we have some very motivated
students who will complete the education well and quickly and become super qualified candidates for jobs in the food industry"

Bjarke Bak Christensen, Head of Department of Food Science

Again this year many new students will be enrolled at the BSc in Food Science at University of Copenhagen





                                                                  On 30 July 2014, young people became answered whether they are enrolled to the study they applied for. At the same time it is possible to apply for admission to the educations which are still available like Food Science. The availability will be announced on both www.KOT.dk and www.Studier.ku.dk and on Facebook. The students who were denied an education in the first place are very welcome to apply for Food Science program now.

"The Food Science program is characterized by a very good student environment and there are
many opportunities to do projects
in the food industry. The food area
draws on many disciplines,
from physics, chemistry or microbiology and understanding
of consumer behavior.


Here's something everyone can find interesting so I would encourage young
people to apply now. We look forward to seeing even more students inSeptember
