The number of would-be students applying to university in Wales has fallen by 7%, according to analysis by UCAS.
Across the UK, 30,000 fewer people applied to start degree courses this autumn by January 15 - the main deadline for submitting applications.
The fall has been caused by a number of factors, UCAS suggested, including drops in EU student applications following the Brexit vote.
Despite the overall decrease, it is encouraging that the number of 18-year-old applicants remains high, and that application rates for disadvantaged groups continue to rise.
However, we are seeing large falls for older applicants, partly because of strong young recruitment in recent years... and probably also reflecting increased employment, the higher minimum wage and more apprenticeship opportunities.
