Rise in A-level students accepted on architecture courses

  • Comment

The number of students accepted onto architecture, planning and building courses has risen 10 per cent since last year, according to early data from higher-education clearing body UCAS

Following last week’s A-level results, UCAS said 6,700 students had been awarded places to study architecture and related courses at UK universities - up from 6,120 last year.

English students made up the majority of those offered places, however there was a 24 per cent rise in students from outside of the EU being accepted to study architecture, planning and building.

The number of EU students from outside the UK placed to study the disciplines rose by 12 per cent.

The figures will rise as students are offered places through clearing, however UCAS said a more detailed breakdown of placements for individual disciplines would not be available for some months.

Final data for 2014 showed that a total of 7,695 students were placed on architecture, planning, building and related courses.Of those 4,220 students solely studied architecture. Of them, 54 per cent were male.
