THOUSANDS of students have signed up to study at the University of Portsmouth.

The university has met its target of recruiting just over 5,000 UK and EU undergraduate students.

In previous years, there have been strict controls on the number of students each university can recruit. But this year, English universities have been allowed to accept as many first-year students as they choose.
