With slightly more young women than men going to university, female students are dominating in an increasing number of fields, figures from national statistics agency CBS show.
For example, 81% of students studying veterinary science are female, as are 65% of law students and 58% of biochemistry and biology students.
Men outstrip the number of women studying humanities, architecture and business administration and account for over 80% of transport and logistics, computer science and technology students.
