Pre-university Spanish students consider the UCLM as the seventh public university among their preferences

According to the Statistics of Universities, Centres and Degrees

The ‘Statistics of Universities, Centres and Degrees’ published by the Ministry of Education every year indicates that the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) has turned out to be the seventh public university with the highest preference rate in the current academic year 2017- 18. The applications made by pre-university students who wanted to study a degree at the UCLM exceeded the offer made by the academic institution, surpassing in 22% the over demand rate registered in all public universities in Spain.

The ‘Statistics of Universities, Centres and Degrees’, released by the Ministry of Education last April 5th, indicates that pre-university students throughout Spain applied for 379,255 undergraduate studies as a first option considering that the 47 existing public universities in Spain could only attend 245,203 applications. This means that there was an excess demand of 54.7% with respect to the total on-site public offering. This percentage raised to 88.2% in the case of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), being ranked as the seventh public university with the highest preference rate in Spain.

Therefore, the 47 degrees at the UCLM met a higher demand rate than that registered by the average of Spanish public on-site universities, resulting in a final registration of 86.1% in undergraduate studies offered by the University, meaning that almost 9 out of 10 of the available places for Degrees studies were occupied.

In the context of the Strategic Plan 2016-2020, the UCLM has been adopting policies of reorganization of its new new students’ enrollment offer during the last two academic years with the dual aim of adapting its offer to the demand of pre-university students and strengthen its connection with the strategic sectors that offer greater possibilities of employability. In these two academic years, the preference rate has increased by 5.5 percentage points while maintaining the occupancy rate of the places offered at high levels above 86%, with an average admission score of 8.3 points for the 5,111 pre-university students who accessed the UCLM by pre-enrolling in the current 2017-18 academic year.

These statistics have been released coinciding with the Open House Days to be held on April 14th and 15th at the campuses of Ciudad Real, Toledo and April 21st, and 22nd in Albacete and Cuenca, with important changes regarding the organisation of the tours and the presentation of the offer.
