In the latest Times Higher Education ranking of the top 200 universities across the world, the UK has 34 universities in the list, with Oxford, Cambridge and Imperial College London being in the top 10. With such a significant showing its little wonder that thousands of overseas students are coming to these shores every year to enrol on university courses.
UCAS have already reported on the record number of international students this year and this upward trend is set to continue. A number of UK universities have climbed in the rankings and these include Warwick, Exeter, St Andrews, Dundee, Newcastle and Reading. UK universities are standing out on the world stage and this is a highly positive indicator for the strength of the student property market.
The UK is renowned for providing high quality further education and as this reputation grows, the influx of international students needing quality accommodation will continue to grow. The student property market is booming at the moment so these rankings are great news for investors with more opportunities for high yielding PBSA investments sure to become available to meet the student accommodation needs.
