1 in 5 students unintentionally block themselves from degree choices - “Where Next?” @UCAS_online report on student choice and careers advice
Two in five students at university say they would have made better choices had they had better access to higher quality information and advice in school. As a result, one in five students couldn’t study a degree subject that interested them because they didn’t have the right subjects to progress. This is most apparent for some degree courses, such as medicine and dentistry, maths, economics or languages, which require applicants to have taken a specific set of ‘fixed’ pre-requisite qualifications.
@UCAS Response to @HEPI_news 'Designing an English Social Mobility Index' report
Following the publication of the report by the Higher Education Policy Institute, ‘Designing an English Social Mobility Index’, John Cope, Director of Strategy & Policy at UCAS, said:
Over 60,000 people are keen to be part of the fightback against coronavirus and embark on a career in nursing according to latest university application statistics, published today by UCAS (@ucas_online).
@ucas_online - The key influencers of young people making decisions about their choices after school are unaware of all the options available, with almost 1/3 of parents or carers unaware that their son or daughter can apply to degree apprenticeships alongside their university application.
Students turn to technology with university choices - @UCAS figures have revealed demand for #STEM courses is on the rise, with the number of students studying #AI at university surging by 400%
New subject data from UCAS shows a big shift towards technology-based degrees mirroring recent trends, with the last decade seeing impressive growth in engineering and computer science subjects, including a 400% jump in acceptances to artificial intelligence (AI) courses.
