De Montfort University in the UK's fastest growing university list
3 March 2016
With it's business and media course having the highest rise in the country, De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) was UK's fastest sixth fastest growing university. According to a report by UCAS, DMU had the biggest rise in both home and international students.
DMU also saw a rise in number of students for law and social science.
2015 being the first year without the cap on the number of students, DMU performed strongly. Overall, more than half a million students took admission into UK universities.
UCAS's Chief Executive Mary Curnock Cook said: “Differences in access to higher education between rich and poor are at historic lows. But with further increases in the gap between men and women entering higher education, we can now see clearly that concentrating outreach efforts on young men, particularly White men, would make a significant contribution to diminishing the rich-poor gap.”
