More people are choosing to study at the University of the West of Scotland than last year.
The Hamilton-based institution, which also has campuses in Paisley, Ayr and Dumfries, has received 6.47% more applications for full-time courses than last year.
The university, which offers degrees in a range of subjects including business, engineering and sport, is in the process of a £200m investment programme which will include a revamp and upgrade of classrooms and computing systems across all four sites.
Professor Seamus McDaid CBE, principal and vice chancellor of UWS, said: “We are delighted to see this rise in applicants. This emphasises the continued popularity of our degree programmes across all four of our campuses.
“UWS enjoys strong links with industry, business, the public sector and the professions and these links influence and inform course development to ensure our students have the essential skills they need to compete in the job market.
“We are committed to providing excellence in the student experience and our £200million investment programme ensures that students at UWS have access to some on the best facilities in the Scottish university sector.”
UWS is Scotland’s largest modern university and offers bachelors, masters and research degrees as well as business-to-business opportunities.
