Record number of student applications to UK institutions
Following the deadline for submissions to study at UK universities in the 2015 academic year, the University and College Admissions Service (UCAS) have announced a record number of applications to UK academic institutions.
The figure, the highest ever level, totals 592,290 applications, over 10,000 more than the previous record set in 2011. Thus, it seems that initial worries over student numbers and the demand for places following the rise in tuition fees in 2012 were exaggerated.
With demand for places surging ever higher and a recorded shortage in the number of beds for students, never before has investing in Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) looked so desirable. Visit our dedicated Student page to see our current investment opportunities, ROC Student Investments.
