Transparency Return 2019
The information published on these pages shows:
- The number of applications for admission on to recognised, undergraduate higher education courses that we have received from UK domiciled applicants.
- 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 attained a particular degree or other academic award, or a particular level of such an award, on completion of their course with us.
It also shows these numbers by reference to:
- The gender of the individuals to which they relate
- Their ethnicity
- Their socio-economic 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.

We are pleased that our attainment statistics show that there is little significant difference between the rates of high grades awarded to students on the basis of their ethnicity or gender.
It is also pleasing to note that the rates of high grade degrees awarded to students from the lowest socio-economic backgrounds is equitable to those from the most. This is a strong indication of the success of our work in supporting students towards making regular improvements to their work. These students have overcome significant challenge, working with tutors and support staff to improve their study skills, subject knowledge and their ability to apply theories to a range of settings.
We recognise that when the 1st and 2nd Quintile are compared with students from 3, 4 and 5, there is a greater gap, 7%, and we have set this as a target in our Access and Participation Plan.
