However China leads in terms of absolute number of student applicants to British Universities. 6903 of Chinese students applied in 2013, but that is just 9.9% increase as compared to the enrollments in 2012. Malaysia and Italy have recorded 25% and 22% increase respectively.

The figures were released by University and Colleges Admissions Services (UCAS) on Thursday. According to the data available with UCAS the number of students from outside European Union (EU) wanting to study in UK in 2013 has risen by 9.6% year on year.

British Immigration Minister Mark Harper attributed the rise in more enrollments from China and India to the world class universities that Britain has and the way Britain has tackled abuse of the student route head on, without affecting genuine students. Harper expressed the confidence that the reputation of the British education system will prevail and it will be the front runner in the global race as ever.
