The number of applications for university places for the start of the 2014/15 academic year was the highest since 2011/12, the last year under the old tuition fee regime. Across the UK, there were a total of 499,370 applications for university places at the end of September 2014. The UK is typified by universities who provide accommodation for less than a quarter of the total student intake.
