Student interest on the rise for architecture says UCAS

Applications for architecture courses have risen by 17.5 per cent this year, according to latest figures from the Universities and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS).

Schools had received 18,357 applications by mid-January compared to 15,623 by the same date in 2003. The rise is considerably higher than the national increase in university applications, which stands at just 3.4 per cent.

Kit Allsop, chair of the heads of school body SCHOSA, said the introduction of top-up fees in 2006 may have encouraged school-leavers to go straight to college, rather than taking a year out, to minimise costs.

He added it was too early to predict the effect it would have on schools, but that 'we should not see this as a problem but as an opportunity'.
