UCAS Undergraduate end of cycle data resources 2023

Our detailed data resources for the end of the 2023 application cycle.

The sector-level end of cycle data resouces cover applicants and applications to courses 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 and later recorded through the UCAS Undergraduate scheme will include those which were previously part of UCAS Teacher Training - estimated to be around 2,000 acceptances per year, mostly aged 21 or over.

The UCAS Teacher Training scheme closed at the end of the 2021 application cycle. Subsequently, postgraduate teacher training courses at Welsh providers were added to the Undergraduate application scheme from the 2022 application cycle.

There has been an adjustment in the method by which centres are categorised in the 2023 application cycle. We're considering the best option going forward to enable reporting of this data in a time series, and we expect to release this in the near future.
