Engineering and technology course applications are down 4% in the 1st preferences for Level 8 courses in 2017. The initial figures suggested there would be a 5% fall, which indicates that a number of applicants used the change of mind facility to switch to engineering courses.

The biggest rises in applications are seen in agriculture/horticulture (+22.3) and dentistry (+13.8%).

Law, art and design, arts, architecture, built environment and other healthcare courses all see significant rises in applications.

Students will receive their results on 16 August, with the first offers being issued 4 days later.
