Here’s How Every University in Busan Fared This Year Filling Their Registration Quota

As the first semester of 2023 has begun at universities around Busan, 14 of the 15 universities failed to fill their registration quota. 

Compared to last year, the enrollment rate of some universities has increased, but in the case of lower-ranking universities, department restructuring is expected to accelerate.

Looking at the final registration results for freshmen for the 2023 academic year at 15 four-year universities in Busan, 29,921 out of a total of 31,180 recruits have completed registration.

Of all the universities, the enrollment rate is 95.9% which rose by 4.2% from 91.7% in 2021, the lowest ever, and rose by 2.7% from last year’s 93.2%.

Last year, there were 2,186 unregistered people, but this year, the number of unregistered people also decreased to 1,261.

Looking at each university, except for Korea Maritime and Ocean University, which recorded 100% of its enrollment quota, the remaining 14 universities failed to fill 100%.

Donga University, as well as Pusan National University, Pukyong National University, Busan University of Foreign Studies, Kyungsung University, and Pusan National University of Education, recorded 99%, virtually filling most of the quota.

In the case of Busan University of Foreign Studies, the enrollment rate increased by 17% from 82.6% last year to 99.7% this year.

However, universities with low enrollment rates have holes in their quotas of up to 300 students.

Most of these universities are universities that have not undergone restructuring, such as reducing the number of departments or merging, due to the so-called Prime Project.

These universities are expected to undergo major reforms next year, such as large-scale reductions in admissions and restructuring of departments.
