Postgraduate Taught Pulse Update as of Feb 24

Postgraduate Taught Pulse Update as of Feb 2024

Our unique Pulse trackers and Share of Search data provide insights on thousands of prospective international students interested in UK Masters study opportunities. As of Feb 2024, we’re seeing that:

  • Our ‘Christmas uptick’ domestic audiences’ positivity about Masters study has fallen away, but the overall trend is still encouraging
  • Interest in Autumn 2024 has now overtaken Spring, albeit much later in the cycle than is typical
  • International Share of Search for UK Masters is still below last year, with EU audiences also seeing a drop (this won’t be helped by the announcement of a Graduate Route review in December)
  • Subjects and specialisms are seeing small movements, with year-on-year drops for some popular Psychology specialisms and a big fall for Project Management
  • Our Spotlight section looks at the hypothetical impact of changes to the UK Graduate Route
