A pretty cool article by the Telegraph has analysed new data from UCAS, which found that last year, half the students embarking on their journey into university were the first in their family to do so.
This is the first time on record that the number of students with non-academic parents has matched the number of those from advantaged, academic backgrounds.
Great news, but it's not the only shocker to come from UCAS figures. It's been found that, although numbers of students heading to uni are record-breaking, the amount of students taking top courses such as Medicine, Sciences and Maths has dropped.
It seems as though the students enrolling as the first in their family are heading to lower and middle-ranking universities, where the wealthier, with a family history of academia, are the ones attending top unis.
Wondering whether this info will impact you?

There's even a handy table, which shows how long it will take uni students to pay off their student loan, based on their career, debt upon graduation, and average starting salary.
