Application data from this year’s Ucas figure analysis show a huge gap in the application trends across the UK. Whilst Black and Asian school leavers are amongst the most likely to apply within ethnic minorities, Northern Irish teens are the most likely to have university dreams in the UK. Within England, it is London that has the most applicants. After the initial dip in the number of people applying for university following the increase of tuition fees, the numbers across the data seem to indicate a long-term rise in university applicants for undergraduate courses in the UK. Though the general figures seem to display a rise in submissions to UCAS, the numbers fail to take into account mature and part time students in addition to the acute variances behind the general trend. The figures are from an accumulation of applications 2004 to 2013. Overall almost half of young people now apply for university places in the UK. In England this rose from 36% to 44% between 2006 and 2010.
