Laurea among the top5 most popular Universities in Finland

According to the latest statistics my workplace Laurea University of Applied Sciences has been ranked among the top 5 most popular Universities in Finland. The statistics include both Universities of Applied Sciences (ammattikorkeakoulut) and Universities (yliopistot).
