The number of applicants for the Armed Forces’ bachelor programs has increased by almost 20%. More than 3,700 applicants are vying for just over 240 places.

Last year, 3,100 people applied for the bachelor’s programs and the three-year study program in language and intelligence, which has since become a bachelor’s degree. That corresponds to an increase of 19.4%.

“It is gratifying to see that military leadership education, our profession, and social mission appeal to so many young people.

“We offer a very good education where learning and development take place through a combination of theory and practice,” Major General Henning-A. Frantzen, the rector of the Norwegian Defense College, noted.

At the same time, the number of applicants for the one-year study program in command and military operations has quadrupled from 202 to 812 applicants.
