University of Manchester received the most applications out of the Russell Group in 2024

It is sometimes hard to see why when you’re traipsing to uni on the 142 in the rain…

The University of Manchester has been ranked the most popular Russell Group university in 2024 after 93,450 students applied to study here in 2023. 71,510 more people than those who applied to study at The University of Cambridge!

Check out our comprehensive breakdown of how many applications every single Russell Group uni received, here.

It is unusual to ever see Cambridge and Oxford at the bottom of the leaderboard, pretty satisfying.

Although this is most likely because of their notoriously challenging application process (entrance exam and interview), it is kind of fun to see the supremes ranking the lowest at 21,940 and 24,230.
