Static demand for university places

Fall in number of British school-leavers is offset by rise in European applicants.

British universities are becoming ever more reliant on EU students to fill their undergraduate places, according to figures published by the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service on 4 February.

Overall numbers have stalled, according to the data, which provide the first indication of student recruitment this autumn. The number of home students who applied for a full-time university place by the 15 January deadline fell by 1 per cent in England, but rose in other parts of the UK. Meanwhile the number of EU applicants has risen by 6 per cent and the number of international applicants has increased by 1 per cent.
