Daegu Health College (DHC, President Dr. Nam, Sung-hee) closed its application window for 1st round of year 2020 early admission on the 27th. DHC received 13,984 applications for the next intake of 1,802 students (as of 5 pm 27 SEP 2019), totaling acceptance rate of 7.8 : 1.
This is a marginal increase from last year’s 7.7 : 1 (13,212 applications for 1,698 acceptance; 860 more applications from last year), while the college anticipates more applications to follow by midnight which is the deadline. Of all applicants, 484 are college graduates, which is an increase of 100 from last year – proving DHC’s reputation as the first choice for second college degree.
Looking in-depth by each departments’ acceptance rate; physical therapy (vocational high school 43 to 1 / regular high school 16 to 1), public health administration (vocational high school 33 to 1), early childhood education (vocational high school 24 to 1), dental technology (vocational high school 21 to 1), and nursing (regular high school 16 to 1).
In addition, fire safety and management (vocational high school 20 to 1), occupational therapy (vocational high school 18 to 1), radiology (vocational high school 17 to 1), and both the sports rehabilitation and health medical data system had 14 to 1 for vocational high school students.
For college graduates; physical therapy (evening, 26 to 1 / day, 14 to 1), nursing (7 to 1), dental technology (evening, 5 to 1), and early childhood education (4 to 1).
DHC admission dean Jang, Woo-young (professor, Dept. optical science) said “popular health related departments like physical therapy, nursing, public health administration and dental technology, as well as the non-health related departments such as fire prevention and management, early childhood education, and nutrition science are very competitive for their advantage in employment, resulting in popular departments attracting even more students while the less popular departments are having challenges. I think this reflects social issues such as youth unemployment.”
