Number of EU students applying to UK universities surges

More EU students have applied to study at UK universities this year despite industry-wide fears that the Brexit vote would make it less appealing, new Ucas figures show.

The number of EU and international students applying for university places in the UK has increased to more than 100,000 for the first time – a rise of nearly 8 per cent on last year, data reveals.

The weaker pound and the government’s commitment to help fund places has helped to boost interest among non-UK students this year following the Brexit vote, the university admissions body has said.

Today’s figures show that the number of EU applicants increased by 3.4 per cent to 43,510, meanwhile the number of international applicants rose by 11.1 per cent to 58,450 – the highest on record.
