What are the most popular (and popular) courses at foreign universities

 Among the most popular courses at foreign universities, the highlight is in the area of economics . Medicine, a course that usually mobilizes more candidates in Brazil, is a post-graduate career , so it does not enter the race. Prospective doctors, in general, enter other related training, such as Biology and Chemistry, and apply thereafter to graduate school .

In the case of American universities, students enter graduation without necessarily defining the courses they wish to take. It is not necessary to mention the major or minor of interest, even if the student can describe his favorite areas in the newsrooms of the application . Therefore, it is more difficult to determine which courses are the most popular - but it is easy to say which of the areas of knowledge attract the most people.

The most popular courses at Ivy League universities

At six of the eight universities that make up the Ivy League , a collection of prestigious universities in the United States, the most popular course is economics. It is the most sought after major by students of names like Harvard , Yale , Dartmouth and Columbia . Such courses tend to be among the best evaluated in university rankings such as the QS, published every year.

It is worth remembering that entering an Ivy League university , by itself, means going through a very competitive filter. Most institutions that are part of the group have an acceptance rate of less than 10%. In Harvard, the rate is 5.2% and in Columbia, 5.8%. The Cornell University , in turn, was the only one to accept more people to the courses: the rate in this case was 12.5%.

On the podium of the most popular courses in the Ivy League, however, there are also varied figures. In Princeton , for example, the second course most sought after by students is the Woodrow Wilson School. The program studies the design, analysis and evaluation of policies and, to choose him as a major, students need to take subjects such as sociology, politics and, of course, economics.
