The coronavirus pandemic has given rise to a number of changes across the world. No sector or section of society has been left unaffected by the restrictions brought about by the pandemic, and the international education sector has not been an exception either. There have been a number of restrictions on students for the past two years including border restrictions as well as restrictions on attending classes in person. However, in spite of these restrictions, the number of students applying for UK student visas from Indian students has been increasing, cementing the United Kingdom as a popular destination for study abroad among Indian students and other countries.
According to the latest data released by the United Kingdom’s application system for higher education, there has been an increase of nearly 30 percent in the number of applications for admission to undergraduate programs at Top UK universities from Indian students, in spite of the ongoing situation with the variants of coronavirus and changing restriction levels. As the country opens up more fully, we can definitely expect more applications from international students.
The analysis, conducted by the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service or UCAS for short, has discovered that more than 9,000 applications for admission were received from Indian students, which was a jump from the nearly 7600 applications the previous year. This can be attributed to the slowly opening up of zones in the United Kingdom and the easing of the restrictions.
