Applicants and acceptances by groups of applicants 2016

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

The table below includes our new applicant-based statistics, with most having a time series of 2006 - 2016.

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.

In 2015, around 120 courses at providers in Scotland that were previously part of the UCAS Teacher Training scheme, moved into the UCAS Undergraduate scheme. The numbers for providers in Scotland in 2015 recorded through the UCAS Undergraduate scheme will include those which were previously part of UCAS Teacher Training – estimated to be around 2,000 acceptances, mostly aged 21 or over.

Context notes for these data resources can be found on the Technical notes page.

Data sets are available as a PDF report (containing a maximum of ten years data) and a CSV file. Aggregate .zip folders of the data sets are available here:
