Russell Group response to June 2022 UCAS application data release

14 July 2022

Commenting on the June 2022 UCAS application data release (14 July), Sarah Stevens, Director of Policy at the Russell Group said:

“It is encouraging to see more young people applying to university and being ambitious with their choices, including those from the most disadvantaged backgrounds. It will be a competitive year for admissions, and Russell Group universities are working hard to give as many people the opportunity to study with them as they can, while maintaining a high-quality experience for students. We’re pleased that UCAS predicts record numbers will get their firm choice this year on results days, and there are lots of options available to those who are unplaced or choose to go through clearing.

“Today’s figures also show that despite a highly competitive environment, the UK remains a world-class destination for international students. The strong growth in applications from India and Nigeria, prioritised in the UK’s International Education Strategy, demonstrate efforts to attract students from across the world like the graduate route are beginning to pay dividends.”
