Officials at the University of Ulster, having mistakenly offered admission to all 370 students who applied for its 194 slots to study engineering this year, will enroll all of them even though many of them did not achieve the requisite academic requirements, The Irish Times reported. The university sent out an e-mail offering admission to all of the students who applied, rather than just to those who had qualified for admission. Some of the students would have earned places in other colleges at Ulster, so the number of students who would not have enrolled there numbers about 100, according to the newspaper.
