The sector-level end of cycle data resouces are accompanied by the release of End of Cycle Reports.
The 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.
Technical notes and definitions are available above in the help section of the dashboard.
On 22 December 2020, data files containing entry rates were published.
On 22 January 2021, an update was made to the entry rates by UK region and parliamentary constituency. This has been done to account for redistribution of those UK applicants not assigned a region or parliamentary constituency. This has resulted in minor increases (of up to 2.6 percentage point) in some entry rates. For more information, please see the adjusted accepted applicant and entry rate definitions in the help section of the dashboard above.
On 22 January 2021, an update was made to the POLAR4, IMD, UK region and parliamentary constituency entry rate CSV files, to add adjusted accepted applicant figures to the files. For more information, please see the adjusted accepted applicant and entry rate definitions in the help section of the dashboard above.
Gibraltar has been classified as EU (excluding the UK) in this release. This has resulted in a small overreporting of EU (excluding UK) figures, and a small underreporting of Not EU figures.
