History tells us that when the economy goes down, postgraduate applications go up. After the 2008 financial crisis, postgraduate student numbers grew by an average of 4.4% per cycle between 2007/8 and 2010/11 (HESA). Between the 2011/12 to 2019/20 cycles numbers adjusted back down, then returned to a trend growth rate of around 2% a year. So can we expect a surge in postgraduate applications in our current economic climate? This blog will look at some of the key factors affecting postgraduate demand, postgraduate funding and the competitor landscape, reasons that applicants are drawn to postgraduate study, and the trends we are seeing in students’ postgraduate course and career choices.

An increasing number of students are seeing the benefits of apprenticeships. Read our insights about youth apprentices.
This series will raise the profile of apprenticeships as a valuable education pathway. To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we’re releasing advice videos for apprenticeship providers and employers.
You’ll learn how young people currently view apprenticeships, and how you can promote apprenticeship schemes to this audience more effectively.
We teamed up with governement representatives to uncover student’s perceptions of apprenticeships, communications, careers in teaching and more.
With the rise of alternatives to higher education, such as degree apprenticeships, students now have more options to consider than ever before.
