The university enrollment campaign in Belarus sums up interim results. IT, law, chemistry and biology are still the top picks among applicants. Traditionally, these also see the toughest competition with 3 to 5 applicants per position. But for certain technical majors where the core subject is, for example, physics, an extra selection may be announced later. Applications for fee-based education can be filed until August 9. Lists of those selected for state-financed tuition will be published on August 5, those for fee-based education – on August 11 The total planned number of new students to be admitted is almost 55 thousand people.
