Applications to the University of Northampton are running at a slightly higher level than last year, latest figures have shown.

Last year the university increased tuition fees to £8,500 per year but this does not seem to have deterred potential students as applications are up 1.5 per cent compared to January 2012.

Nationally, the number of students who applied up to the January 15 deadline, has increased 3.5 per cent in the past year, boosted in particular by a recovery in overseas students.

Paul Tebbutt, admissions assistant registrar at the University of Northampton, said: “The change in the number of applications received by the University of Northampton continues to reflect the national picture with the number of applications received by the University to start undergraduate courses in the autumn being 1.5% up on the same date last year.”
