Increase in UCAS Applications for 2009 Entry

Overall UCAS applications are up this year by 8%, with increases in mature applicants (I wonder why that could be?).

The Times Higher has an article on this story, and shows some of the winners and losers - Birmingham City University has seen its applications rise by over 35%!

I guess the question is, what are they doing to achieve this? And more importantly for them, how will they meet student expectations if this translates into a big increase in student numbers?
