Applications per place available

This document details the number of places availalble and the number of applications received in admissions cycle 2019/20 for 2020 entry. The data is broken down by department and by Home/EU and Overseas. The number of places available is defined as the target minus the number of places held for deferred applicants from the previous cycle and forecast foundation progression students.

The number of applications per place varies from year to year, but will provide you with an idea of how competitive each department is.

2019 Office for Students Transparency Report

The information available to download in the link below shows:
  • The number of applications for admission on to recognised, undergraduate higher education courses that we have received from UK domiciled applicants.
  • The number of offers we have made in relation to those applications.
  • The number of those offers accepted and the number of those who have registered with us.
  • 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 us.

It also shows these numbers by reference to:

  • The gender of the individuals to which they relate
  • Their ethnicity
  • Their socio-economic background.

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.
