I understand that the preposition here has to be en but I can't really get to the bottom of why. Chris has said in this discussion that the form is 's'inscrire en qqch...' but I don't really see this supported by dictionaries where à and dans seem more commonly cited. Is it that the preposition comes before the word quoi ?

In the context of university/university course, you usually use the expression "s'inscrire en + [type of course]".
Je me suis inscrit en (faculté de ) médecine = I applied to med school
Je me suis inscrit en (faculté de ) droit = I applied to law school
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
If you were to scroll well down the page of my link above, you will find examples of useage of this expression "en quoi".
It seems to me that this "en quoi" is somewhat informal useage.
Have a look at my link -- it may help?
Thank you Jim, that is interesting :)
It seems that both are a possibility: s'inscrire à as well as s'enscrire en. The latter seems to be more formal. But the use of en has no connection to the interrogative pronoun quoi.
Thanks Chris - yes, that seems right
Merci Céline !
