UCAS expect international student applications to UK universities to rise by up to 50%

26 May 2022

A report conducted by UCAS has forecast that the amount of international students applying to study in the UK will rise by nearly 50% over the next five years.

The survey of international students from over 110 countries who plan to study internationally showed that 88% of students viewed the UK as either a positive or very positive place to study, while 77% said they were applying because of the country’s strong academic reputation. In total, it is expected that the volume of undergraduate applications will increase by 46% to 208,500 by 2026.

Clare Marchant, UCAS chief executive, said: “Despite the challenges of the pandemic, international students have pursued the opportunities available to them and we forecast sustained growth in interest to study in the UK to continue into the next decade.

“Our findings from this joint research with the College Board focus on international students’ mindsets and what they want from their higher education experience."

 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.
