Applications for full-time undergraduate courses are up by 19%

Anglia Ruskin University has seen the number of applications for full-time undergraduate courses rise by almost 19% over the last 12 months.

The University has so far received 8,195 applications through UCAS from people wishing to enrol on a full-time undergraduate course beginning in September 2011. This represents an increase of 18.79% in the number of applications received compared to the beginning of January 2010 (6,899).

Professor Michael Thorne, Vice Chancellor of Anglia Ruskin University, said:

“Anglia Ruskin University is becoming more popular and yet again we are seeing a year-on-year rise in the number of applications.  Compared to the same time last year, we have received 19% more applications through UCAS for students wishing to enrol on one of our full-time courses.

“With our increasingly attractive portfolio of courses and new facilities, we are finding that more and more people want to come here to study.”

Pat Watson, Head of UK/EU Admissions at Anglia Ruskin University, said:

“The application process has never been more critical than it is today.

“The number of applicants is still increasing and we expect an additional rush to beat the forthcoming fee increases.”
