thread in slightly connected news
just had a staff meeting where we were informed we've had a 60% year-on-year increase in student applications from rUK for September, not connected to any particular activity on our side
permalink rUK?
?
permalink Rest of the UK (i.e. England, Wales and NI)
traditionally English and Welsh students are a very small proportion of Scottish undergrads, something like 5-10% (excluding oddities like St Andrews), so clearly something has happened in the past year that is driving a huge number of 17-20 year olds to want to be north of the border....
permalink So, if it was 5% last year and you got a 60% increase
That would be a little over 10%, so in line with normal levels, no?
