International student applications at UK universities up 9% on last year

22 August 2021

Figures released by UCAS have revealed that the number of applications from international students outside the EU are up 9% on last year.

Overall numbers for international UCAS applications were 33,630 in 2019 and 34,310 in 2020. The figure ahead of 2021 entry is now 37,310, a 9% rise. Almost 50,000 EU students are also set to begin studying an undergraduate degree in the UK, a 5% rise on 2020.

Chief executive of Universities UK Alistair Jarvis said: “Embarking on a degree is a uniquely exciting time, with the skills and experience students set to gain lasting a lifetime, giving them an edge in the employment market and generating significant benefits for the UK as we rebuild from the pandemic.”

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
