2014/15 undergraduate applications to engineering up 10.4%

14-07 applications position as at June 2014The UCAS data released on 11 July, 2014 shows the number of undergraduate applications to UK universities for 2014/15 entry received by the June deadline were up 4.1% compared with the same point in 2013/14.  Applications received from now on will be dealt with in the clearing system.  But it’s even better news for engineering with applications up 10.4% – one of the three biggest percentage increases (after Technologies at 12.8% and Computer Science at 12.1%) – compared with 2013/14 and 17.1% compared with 2012/13.  Applications from UK and EU students were particularly strong.

The proportion of engineering applications as a percentage of all applications is on the increase too.  In 2010/11, engineering accounted for 5% of all applications – for 2014/15 it’s 5.7%.
