UCAS figures

 

ULH NEAR TOP IN APPLICATIONS TABLE

 

A sharp increase in applications from students wishing to study with us helped ULH to third place in a new league table published in February in the Times Higher Education Supplement.

 

Official figures from UCAS showed that the number of students applying to study at ULH was up almost 14% on last year - putting the university in third place among UK universities.

 

Meanwhile the national trend has been in the opposite direction, with applications to study falling this year by around 3% compared with last year.

 

“These latest figures demonstrate just how attractive to potential students our university really is,” commented Ian Cairns, Director of Marketing at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside. “Both Hull and Lincoln are terrific student cities, and we’re continuing to invest heavily in new accommodation and academic facilities.”

 

The university achieved third place overall after applications from students leapt from 7,819 in February 1998 to 8,912 this month - a rise of 13.98%. De Montfort University came top with an increase of almost 20%, while the worst performing university was Lampeter in Wales, where applications fell by 23.58%.
