Demand for student places falls

University applications have fallen for the first time in six years, as higher fees are introduced across England.

OH THE REVELATION HOW COULD I NOT OF FIGURED THAT ONE OUT FOR MYSELF,BBC I OWE YOU SOO MUCH (I'm near to tears)

Almost 13,000 fewer students have applied for courses starting in September than had applied at this time last year – a fall of 3.4%.

The National Union of Students blamed the fall on higher tuition fees, where students will pay up to £3,000 a year.

Oh thankyou BBC for the blindingly obvious,my tax money is soooo well spent then,the NUS must be proud it's students were awake enough to spot this Giant £3,000 Pound Rhino selectively chasing down ONLY ENGLISH STUDENTS
Currently the amount universities in England can charge students for tuition each year is capped at £1,175.

universities in England can charge up to £3,000 a year for tuition from September.

The effect of the so-called top up fees system is evident in the differences between applications for English universities and those for Scottish and Welsh universities, which are not charging the higher fees.

Official figures from the University and Colleges Admissions Service (Ucas) show all applications to English universities are down by 3.7%, while applications to Scottish universities are up by 1.6% and to Welsh universities by 0.5%.

The biggest fall – of 4.5% – is amongst English students applying to English universities. By contrast the figure for applications from English students applying to Scotland is up by 1.9%.

Oh to be at University where the Colour Yellow would clearly tax the most brilliant mind

Yes Boys and Girls and Other these days, ripping off English students to pay for free education for the Scots and the Welsh will have a detrimental effect.

Now Children,lets all look through THE ROUND WINDOW.

  1. Its a really good point. I wonder what, if any our lack of faith in the system and current attitude to education has on demand. The Scots are right to minimise Tuition fees, but it’s grossly unfair that the English have to pay more to be educated in England.
