Office for Students transparency data

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.

You can download the complete dataset from the file found under 'relevant documents' in the right-hand column.

The Oxford context

 

Tables 1a and 1b: Admissions

There are some differences in the admissions tables above, as required by the Office for Students, and the data published in the University’s Undergraduate Admissions Statistics. The data above: 

  • Include undergraduate certificates and diplomas delivered by the Department for Continuing Education.
  • Include applications for Graduate-Entry Medicine (UCAS course code A101).
  • Are based upon year of entry (the start date for the course), while the Admissions Statistics are based upon UCAS Cycle (when applications were submitted).  
  • Are based upon the UCAS End of Cycle report. Data in the Admissions Statistics are updated following the UCAS report, and therefore show more current data.
