More Welsh students choosing to study in England

The number of Welsh students applying to study in England has risen by nearly 20% in four years, new figures show.

The total staying in Wales has fallen since 2010, data from university admissions body UCAS shows.

It has led to opposition parties questioning the Welsh government policy of paying most of students' tuition fees, regardless of where in the UK they study.

Ministers said the policy was "the most equitable we've ever had" and Wales was a "net importer" of students.
