In total, AcadeMediaâs Higher Vocational Education business was awarded 1,506 additional educational places, corresponding to 17 percent of the allocated educational places. This improves AcadeMediaâs total market share. In January 2020, AcadeMediaâs Higher Vocational Education businessâ market share was 14.5 percent.
