Non-EU undergrad Applicants up 8%

International Edu News

According to the UCAS (The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service is a UK-based organisation whose main role is to operate the application process for British universities) analysis, the overall number of people who have applied to UK higher education courses for 2018 has increased by 8 percent. 

Chief executive of UCAS Clare Marchant said the figures show the enduring attraction of a full-time degree for young people, and “the desirability of UK higher education to students from around the world”.

“Whilst this is undoubtedly good news, we must not overlook the continuing fall in applications from older UK students, particularly to study nursing,” said Marchant. It’s also important to remember that most universities and colleges are still keen to receive applications, and students can still make applications via UCAS until 30 June, when Clearing begins.

UCAS will publish a comprehensive picture of the full 2018 admissions cycle in December 2018.
