Over 37% more students were admitted to domestic IT majors than last year, according to the IT Association of Hungary (IVSZ).

The number of applicants for higher education in information technology (IT) increased by almost a third, and the admission rate this year was as favorable as the last ten years. Compared to the previous year, the number of first-place applicants increased by nearly 31%.

Among the individual training areas, the economic informatics and plant engineer-informatics training aroused more interest than last year. In the case of both courses, more than 40% more applicants chose the given major as their first choice than in the previous year. 

The outstanding popularity of the engineering informatics program has continued in 2023 as well. After a 33.5% increase, more than 3,000 students were admitted to the program this year.

According to the IVSZ's forecast, the number of IT graduates may increase by thousands in the coming years, which may bring some relief in the labor shortage.
