Students in Architecture, Building and Planning have Fallen 19% in the last decade

According to the report Patterns and Trends in UK Higher Education (Universities UK), in 2016-17 there were 1,012,425 entrants to higher education institutions in the UK; 56,400 fewer than in 2007-08.

This total does however fluctuate over the period across different types of study, with record numbers of full-time undergraduates and postgraduates in 2016-17.

To better understand how student subject choices have changed over the last decade, global training providers and further education advocates, theknowledgeacademy.com analysed Universities UK’s latest report in detail, with a view to forecast the subjects that may be of interest to learners in 2019.

The Knowledge Academy found, between 2007-08 and 2016-17, changing student demand has been reflected in the courses universities offer.
