Figures have revealed a popularity boom in certain Norwich university courses over the last 20 years - including a 260pc rise in marketing students.
Roll data of various University of East Anglia courses, released under a Freedom of Information Request, shows an increase in the number of students on its marketing and management degree - from 43 in 2013/14, when the course started, to 156 last year.
Growth across the university as a whole is reflected, with most courses reporting increases, including American studies - from 33 students in 1997/8 to 66 in 2017/18 - and law - from 313 to 462 in the same period.
In maths, there has been more subtle growth - from 63 20 years ago to 140 this year.
Modern history was one of the few degrees to report a drop, from 59 in 2007/8 - rising to 90 in 2003/4 - to 47 this year.
