Student Property: Just How Great Is

The Need For It?

When it comes to tactical property investment, it would appear that the UK student property sector could be one of the shrewdest and lucrative choices property investors can make right now.

In 2013 over £2 Billion (GBP) was pumped into the student rental sector by savvy property investors who calculated the increased potential yields were well worth the risks.

This is because demand for student accommodation is at a record high and seems almost certain to continue increasing due to the growing number of UK and overseas university applications being made by prospective students and the increasing number of places being offered on courses by universities in order to attract student interest.

The UK is the current leading host country for attracting international students, with higher demand for places from foreign students than the USA, making our nation the world’s unopposed central student hub, and with good reason, our higher education system is among one of the best in the world, so it is of little wonder that many world leaders are choosing to send their children here to give them a head start in life. And the way current demand for university places is growing suggests that this top education status will not be changing any time soon.

Year on year there has been an increasing number of international students seeking a decent place to live, among fellow undergraduates, while they embark on their studies. Property investors are looking for properties within the

This means that in many UK university towns and cities, market rental prices will inevitably increase due to the increased demand for dedicated student properties, and property investors are virtually guaranteed to see a quick return on their investments because of the overwhelming need for their services.

 Current and prospective student property investors have been delighted to see university applications hit record levels. According to a report from UCAS, this year saw a 4% increase in the number of applications, signalling a likely increase in demand for student property.

The increase in applications – which forms part of a continuing upward trend – comes in spite of the fact that there were fewer 18 year olds amongst the UK population this year. The rise shows that more and more people are looking towards higher education after leaving school and college. By the deadline on January 15th, UCAS had received applications from roughly 580,000 18 year olds. This represents approximately 35% of all 18 year olds in the UK.

Student numbers took a serious hit a few years ago, after a high-profile hike which saw tuition fees almost tripled. However, since that time student numbers have been gradually increasing again and have now essentially recovered from the blow.

The higher education sector has enjoyed something of a rebirth as a result, and university-level qualifications remain highly desirable.

According to Mary Curnock Cook, chief executive of UCAS, there is “a remarkably persistent growth in demand for higher education” which is illustrated by these recent figures. She went on to display that the increased demand could be seen universally. It applies to applications for all institutions, and from students of all backgrounds and groups. Demand was also increasing regardless of tuition fee differences, suggesting that this factor is now not hindering university applications in the way it did immediately following the hike.
