Student property investment set to benefit from record student number

Author: Gemma





Good news for student property investment, the latest figures from UCAS show that the number of university acceptances in the UK has reached record highs.

The report, which is compiled from data gathered in the 4 weeks after A-level results day, has shown that the number of students who have been accepted on courses has increased by 2.5% in the weeks after results were announced.

The admissions service also revealed that 511,730 students had been accepted into courses at UK higher education institutions for the 2015-2016 academic year. This represents a 3% rise in student numbers when compared to last year.

The total number of students expected to enrol on courses for this academic year is expected to reach the 520,000 mark.

The report stated: “The number of acceptances by entry year at this point can differ from the final number of higher education enrolments recorded on statistical returns. This can be due to a number of factors that can vary in their effect from year to year.”

The lift on the number of students who are able to study at universities in England is thought to have been the main reason behind the increase in student numbers.

There was a notable 14% rise in the number of EU students accepted by UK universities.
