Universities in Wales see huge increase in international applicants

13 December 2021

Figures released by UCAS for 2021 have shown a huge increase in the number of international students choosing to study in Wales.

Welsh institutions saw the biggest increase of all home nations - including Ireland and Scotland - with 1,875 international students accepting a place, a 19% rise on 2020. The total number of applicants accepted by Welsh universities is also up 1.5% on last year, making Wales the only UK nation to see an overall increase.

Professor Iwan Davies, Chair of Global Wales, said: “By coming to Wales, international students play an invaluable role in diversifying and internationalising our campuses and communities at a time when retaining an international outlook is more important than ever."
