Record number of EU and international students apply to study in the UK

13 February 2018

Figures released by UCAS have revealed a 3% rise in EU applications (excluding the UK) and an 11% rise in non-EU applications for September 2018 entry.

While overall applications were down 1% due to a drop off in UK applicants, the total number of EU and international applications combined broke the 100,000 mark for the first time.

UCAS chief executive Clare Marchant said: ‘Today’s figures show that UK higher education continues to be a highly popular choice for 18-year-olds, and draws students of all ages from around the world to the UK.”

 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.
