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.
Technical notes and definitions are available above in the help section of the dashboard.
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.
On 13 January 2023 the following context notes were added to the provider-level unconditional offer making reports:
University of Lincoln:
55 conditional unconditional offers were picked up for the 2022 cycle. This appears to be due to conditional offers that were made, and then subsequently converted to unconditional offers through the university's Guaranteed Places Programme. UCAS now believe these offers should be classified as other unconditional offers, rather than conditional unconditional offers. These offers will be reclassified in the next few weeks.
University of Hull
4,245 conditional unconditional offers were picked up for the 2022 cycle. Around 1,445 of these offers were initially conditional with the offer to convert to unconditional if the applicant chooses them as their firm choice. Around 2,800 were initially conditional, with the offer to convert to unconditional if the applicant chooses them as either their firm or insurance choice. UCAS now believes this second group, who were offered an unconditional place should they choose University of Hull as their firm or insurance choice, should be counted as direct unconditional offers, rather than conditional unconditional offers. These offers will be reclassified in the next few weeks.
