[22 JAN 99] UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK PRESS RELEASE
Increase In Number Applying To Warwick Uni

Early figures for the number of students applying to UK Universities show that the University of Warwick has seen a 12% increase in the number of students applying to study at the University. In fact, the university has achieved the second highest increase in application numbers of all 101 UK universities.

Only 14 UK universities are reporting an increase in applications this year, some are currently looking at falls of over 33% in application numbers. The rise in application numbers at Warwick, despite the national trend, reflects Warwick's reputation as one of the UK's top five Universities for research and teaching.

In the last 12 months both the Times and the Financial Times ranked Warwick ahead of Oxford for the quality of its teaching. With the introduction of student fees there is increased financial pressure on students. Students and parents are thus scrutinising much more closely than ever before the reputation of the institutions they are applying to and the quality of teaching they can expect to receive.
