    "But despite turning away record numbers of UK students, universities are still recruiting heavily for overseas candidates who pay up to £20,000 a year in tuition fees.
    There is no bar on the number of international students they can take but they face financial penalties if they exceed strict Government quotas for UK students."

    Can I ask why they felt the need to include this or what relevance this has to the article? More sensationalist tripe from the daily fail by taking subtle digs and trying to stir up dislike for foreigners. Lack of real facts aswell I think. No one has actually put a figure on anything, just that people wil need to explore options fairly rapidly. This is news to no one.

    Who cares the ones with the highest rise in applicants are the ones I least want to go to. As long as SOAS,LSE,Warwick remain low it's all good.

    i think i am going to hate about this is its going to become a big political issue full of hot air for a few weeks then done with it, forgotten until next year, which will be painful for people and bring up hate, for messing up someone dream, and nothing will change


    while the poor people that have missed out its going to play on them for a while, the recession is not helping as you hearing off stories of people going back to uni to gain new skills, and on top on cut backs on spending for the uni, there are just too many people fighting for so few spaces

    Anyway, every news paper for the mail, to the times, to the telegraph, run a similar article each year at this time which never fails to make already stressed exam students the nation over cack themselves.

    but yay for manchester only having 1.2%. hope that bodes well for me...

    Well I suppose it's good in a way, as universities need to remain competitive, otherwise what's the point?

    I think I'm going to be one of those 150,000 though, which is going to suck.
