Office for Students (OfS) Transparency Information

The Office for Students requires higher education providers to publish application, offer, acceptance, registration and attainment data.

The Office for Students has decided that a reduced set of transparency information should continue to be required in the academic year 2020-21. This is due to the continued disruption caused by coronavirus and their intention to review the approach to the transparency information for the longer term. The Transparency 2021 information is limited to the following:

  • The number of students who attained a particular degree or other academic award, or a particular level of such an award, on completion of their course with the provider.

It also shows these numbers by reference to:

  • The gender of the individuals to which they relate.
  • Their ethnicity.
  • Their socio-economic background, in the form of the English Index of Multiple Deprivation (EIMD) 2019.

It is important to note that the data presented has not been contextualised. This means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how many of those applying to courses met the entry criteria. It is also the case that universities and colleges will often receive many more applications than they have spaces on courses and so offer rates will necessarily be lower than application rates in those circumstances.

The data contained in the tables have been rounded and suppressed as follows:

Numerators and denominators have been rounded to the nearest 10. Where the numerator or denominator rounds to 20 or less, the data are suppressed with an "N".

Percentages are rounded according to the smallest, unsuppressed denominator in a given mode and characteristic. If the denominator rounds to:

  • 50 or less: percentages are rounded to 5%
  • 1000 or less: percentages are rounded to 1%
  • More than 1000: percentages are rounded to 0.1%
