The information published on these pages 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.

As a condition of registration with the Office for Students, the regulator for Higher Education in England, UCW is required to publish the below information concerning the gender, ethnicity and socio-economic background of applicants and students.

Approximately 900 students studied at UCW in the 2017/18 academic year across a range of partnership models with the three local universities that award or validate our graduates’ degrees. The information on this page, as per OfS requirements, refers only to those students on programmes considered ‘directly-funded’ by UCW which in 2017/18 was approximately 51% of the total student body. The OfS furthermore requires us to not publish information relating to groups that contain fewer than 25 students for purposes of data protection. As a result only information relating to applicants and students in the White ethnicity group is able to be published.

Those interested in UCW’s priorities and strategy on these matters are invited to read our Access and Participation Plan – the latest iteration of which is available to view on UCW’s and the OfS’ websites. The plan covering the period 2020/21 to 2025/26, pending approval by the OfS, sets ambitious targets relating to a range of student groups including Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) students and commits UCW to significant investment in order to meet these targets.
