Uni Applications up in Northern Ireland, Down in England and Wales

Newspaper cutting is from p.14 of the June 1 2013 edition of the Guardian. It found that applications in England and Wales are well below pre-free rise highs. While applications to universities in Northern Ireland and Scotland remains unchanged.

This follows on from Guardian coverage on the topic which came in April, telling a similar story:

"The number of students who have submitted applications so far this year stands at 601,619 – 2.5% more than in 2012 but lower than in 2010 (-3.74%). Compared with 2010, English students' applications have fallen most sharply (-7.2%), while the number of Welsh applicants is also down (-3.8%). Numbers applying in Northern Ireland (+5.3%) and Scotland (+0.2%) have increased."
