The University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) published its 2016 recruitment data on Thursday (26 January) which showed that acceptances rose by 80 per cent since 2011, an increase greater than other UK universities by a significant margin.
The second and third largest rises were achieved by Coventry University and University of Surrey, which saw a 53 and 50 percent increase respectively.
Professor Helen Higson, Provost and Deputy Vice Chancellor, said: “Aston is distinct from many other universities through our focus on business and the professions. Our students’ employability and continuing success after leaving university is of huge importance to us, and this is what we believe is convincing more students than ever before to choose Aston.”
