Press release

million+ comments on latest UCAS applicant figures

29 May 2014

UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) have today published the May interim statistics for students applying to university in the 2014 cycle.

Pam Tatlow, Chief Executive of the university think-tank million+ said:

“We welcome the fact that applications from students who want to study full-time have increased but numbers have still not recovered to 2010 levels in England. The government needs to do much more to incentivise part-time study if university is going to be accessible to all those who could benefit.”

“There is still time to apply to start a course in September and getting a degree remains one of the best things that people can do to improve their job prospects for the future.”
