Universities maintain enrolment numbers despite unfavourable conditions
HRK President Peter-André Alt commented on the press release from the Federal Statistical Office on current student numbers. "Despite unfavourable general conditions, German universities have maintained the number of first-year students, with 474 000 young people taking up studies this year. Compared to the previous year, this is just under 2000 more first-year students, an increase of 0.4 percent. This is quite an achievement given the declining demographics, the aftermath of the Covid pandemic and the general uncertainty due to the unfavourable economic situation in the wake of the Russian attack on Ukraine."
