Access and transparency

All UK universities registered with the Office for Students are required to publish information relating to their undergraduate attainment.

The information published on these pages shows 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. These numbers are referenced by:

  • Gender
  • Ethnicity
  • Socio-economic background.

In this information, socio-economic background is measured by English Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) quintile. Quintile 1 represents lowest and quintile 5 represents highest socio-economic status. Further information on IMD can be found here.

Our Access and Participation Plan (pdf 584kb) sets out the measures we are taking to support equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups, this includes our strategic aims relating to attainment.

Key

N/A: Is displayed where there is no provision in a given mode or level
N:  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".
DP: Data suppressed for data protection reasons. This is applied where the numerator is two or less, or differs from the denominator by no more than two students.

Data referenced in the above tables and information about the rounding and suppression of data is available for download (xlss 31 kb).
