  • Record fall in UK University Applications from Pakistan

    The number of UK University Applications from Pakistan has dropped by more than 25,000 (4%) overall compared to last year, according to the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service’s (UCAS) latest data pull. This is the first decline in applications since 2012 when tuition fees were raised to £9,000 a year and follows the announcement that Home/EU fees are to be raised once again to £9,250 in England.

    Independent Thinkers offers support tailored to each applicant’s individual requirements and ambitions at every stage of their UK University Applications from Pakistan. There has also been a significant drop in applications to UK universities from mature students (aged 25 and above) in England, of 18% (11,190). Demand among English students, who are bearing the brunt of the tuition fees increase, fell by nearly 10 percent.

    UK University Applications from Pakistan students stayed fairly constant, however, falling only 0.9 percent among EU applicants and 0.8 percent for non-EU applicants. The increased internationalization of British higher education was revealed last week by figures showing a "brain drain" from UK universities, with almost 5,200 university leavers seeking employment in mainland Europe, the Far East, and North America last year – up by 1,000 since the start of the economic crisis.

    The statistics will come as a disappointment after figures released last month showed record applications for courses with an October deadline this year, including all courses at Oxbridge and medicine degrees. This “flight to quality” has seen students target universities and degree subjects that are more likely to lead to a well-paid career, leaving middle-ranking universities which charge the maximum £9,000 tuition fees with thousands of empty places.
