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.
Technical notes and definitions are available above in the help section of the dashboard.
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.
In the 2021 cycle, some RPAs were mistakenly submitted as domiciled in Portugal, meaning that the true number of Portugal domiciled RPAs is lower than the reported number of Portugal domiciled RPAs for the 2021 cycle.
