UCAS recently revealed that a record 461,000+ students from the EU and UK are beginning UK degree courses in 2014-15 - a 4% increase on last year. This was despite a decrease in the total number of 18-year-olds in the population.
2015 – Removing the Intake Cap
In 2015, the intake cap will be removed altogether, meaning that universities will be able to accept as many students as they want.
"What we've been determined to do is ensure that there is a place at university for all those that have the aspiration and capability."
- Greg Clark, Minister of Universities, Aug 2014
This will, of course, put additional strain on an already undersupplied student housing market and see demand for quality student rooms increase.
When the intake caps were removed in Australia in 2012, enrolment grew by more than 5% during the first two years of the policy.
Demand for Purpose-Built Rooms in Leicester
With two highly regarded universities in Leicester, the University of Leicester and De Montfort University, the removal of the intake cap is sure to have a big impact on housing in the area.
In 2014, both universities were inundated with applications through clearing and took on a record number of new students. With both having to turn away a large number of applicants, their intake is highly likely to increase in 2015.
