UCAS Undergraduate end of cycle data resources

Our detailed data resources are published at the end of each application cycle.

From the 2014 cycle onwards, the resources have been modernised into an easier to use, uniform format, based on updated definitions.

The resources cover applicants and applications to courses in the UK recruited through UCAS. In Scotland, there is a substantial section of provision, representing around a third of young full-time undergraduate study in Scotland, that is not included in UCAS’ figures. For people living in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, UCAS covers the overwhelming majority of full-time undergraduate provision.
