The information published on these pages shows:

  • The number of applications for admission on to higher education courses that we have received for courses starting in the 2018-19 academic year.
  • The number of offers we have made in relation to those applications.
  • The number of those offers accepted and the number of those who have registered with us.
  • The number of students who registered and went on to complete their course with us.
  • The number of students who attained a particular degree or other academic award, or a particular level of such an award, on completion of their course with us in the 2017-18 academic year.

It also shows these numbers by reference to:

  • The gender of the individuals to which they relate.
  • Their ethnicity.
  • Their socioeconomic background.

It is important to note that the data presented has not been contextualised. This means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how many of those applying to courses met the entry criteria. It is also the case that universities and colleges will often receive many more applications than they have spaces on courses, and so offer rates will necessarily be lower than application rates in those circumstances.

With regard to information that is split by the three characteristics of gender, ethnicity and socioeconomic background you will see that some figures may be highlighted. This is because those differences between groups of students with particular characteristics are notable.

The data includes only applications from UK domiciled students to study for an undergraduate higher education award, including our degree apprenticeship; it also includes the Graduate Diploma in Law (as this is a graduate level award). Outcomes data for students enrolled on the Graduate Diploma in Law is included in “other undergraduate awards”. The tables do not include students who apply for and attain postgraduate awards.
