4th December 2015

The number of full-time undergraduates from disadvantaged backgrounds going into Higher Education has risen, according to a report published this week by Universities UK. The report also shows that the number of students from outside the EU has now reached 13% - these students are typically charged much higher fees, and it is estimated that they contribute over £7bn annually to the UK economy.
