These statistical releases describe applicants and applications from the 2015 UCAS cycle at the 15 January deadline.

The release is in the same format as the last cycle – seven reports covering different characteristics of applicants (including domicile, age, sex) and provision type (including country of provider and subject). As in previous cycles, the primary set of statistics covers all applications in the UCAS Undergraduate scheme.

For this cycle we have introduced a parallel set of context statistics that exclude, from all cycles, applications to teacher training courses (detailed subject group X1) at providers in Scotland. This is because a large set of teacher training courses in Scotland are being recruited through the UCAS Undergraduate scheme for the first time in 2015, having previously been recruited through UCAS Teacher Training. Around 4,000 applicants in 2015 have been removed to give the context statistics as they have made applications only to teacher training courses in Scotland.

The primary set of statistics describes the full set of applications in the UCAS scheme. The context set of statistics gives a better ‘like for like’ comparison of 2015 to earlier cycles, particularly when looking at applicants from Scotland, providers in Scotland, or the Education subject group.

The primary set of statistics are in this set of reports:

 

The context set of statistics, with exactly the same format, are in this set of reports:

 

An Analysis Report looking at population-referenced application rates at the January deadline has also been published. This report is in a similar format to the last cycle, covering application rates by country, region, age, sex and background. This cycle we have extended the geographical analysis to include more detailed local statistics (for constituencies) and have moved the measure of disadvantage from the POLAR2 to the POLAR3 classification.
