UK Govt abolishes undergraduate student cap for universities

Yesterday the Times Higher Education revealed that Chancellor George Osborne has announced that the government sets to abolish the cap on students numbers in 2015.


He also stated that there will be an extra 30,000 students places next year as an interim before the cap is completely abolished.

The change comes as a result of 60,000 young people each year who have the relevant results are prevented from going to university because of the capped figures.

So with increasing numbers of students expected to apply and be offered places, naturally more university resources will be required to fulfil these places and put an extra strain on recruitment staff following through the journey of each student. This surge of new students is easily handled by the Student CRM, making admin, marketing and recruitment employees' lives simpler by automating processes and making it far more efficient for higher educational establishments to recruit students.

It is excellent news for students, universities and the UK as a whole. There has never been a better time to buy a CRM for your student recruitment.
