30% Rise in Chinese Applicants to UK Varsities

International Edu News

New data from UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) has revealed that the number of UK university applicants from China has increased by 30% for the 2019-2020 academic year to 19,760, overtaking the 18,520 applicants from Northern Ireland.

EU UCAS applicants have increased by 1% in 2019-20, while non-EU ones rose by 8%.
The UK is the second most popular destination for Chinese students seeking a university education abroad after the US, which is becoming viewed as less attractive destination due to new visa restrictions and warnings from the Chinese Ministry of Education. Applications from within the EU and elsewhere increased by 1% and 8%, respectively.While many countries saw a rise in the number of students applying to UK universities, applications from the Nordic countries decreased, along with those of Germany and Hong Kong.
