The National Statistics Postcode Lookup (NSPL) was updated in August 2023, so some attributes derived from applicant postcode may not match previous releases.

In the 2024 application cycle, UCAS' gender classification was broadened to include new categories, which are included in UCAS' reporting. Application rates are currently only reported for men and women, due to the availability of population estimates for these two groups, and unavailability of population estimates for other groups. No attempt has been made to redistribute figures in the numerators or denominators of the application rates by gender. Given this, the application rates reported from the 2024 cycle onwards for men and women are lower than their true values.

On 26 April 2024, CSV files containing figures for nursing, midwifery and teacher training by ethnic group were added to the sector-level CSV files below.
