UCAS publish data showing a rise in the number of students planning to start university this autumn

By June 26, 2020 Press Releases

On 25 June 2020, UCAS published data showing that there are currently more applicants holding a firm offer to start a course this autumn than at the equivalent point last year, and fewer people accepting an offer for a deferred place.

The statistics published by UCAS also show an increase in applicants from outside the EU choosing a deferred start. However, this increase should be seen alongside the 15% overall rise in non-EU applicants.

With regards to applicants from within the EU, the statistics indicate a decline in EU applicants holding an offer. However, this trend should be considered alongside the fall in EU applicants overall.

Overall, more undergraduate applicants have accepted an offer to immediately start studying at university or college compared to 2019.

TIGA introduced the TIGA Accreditation process in January 2015 to ensure that universities and colleges can produce graduates with industry relevant skills. The TIGA Accreditation system accredits the very best undergraduate and postgraduate university courses enabling both prospective students and game developers to identify those courses that are producing industry ready graduates. A list of TIGA accredited courses can be found here.
