About the data

The data are separated between undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research, and cover the following time periods:

  • A-level entries 2002-03 to 2011-12
  • UCAS acceptances 2002-03 to 2012-13
  • HESA data 2001-02 to 2011-12

All data published here exclude the Open University, due to differences in data collection methods (described in more detail in the tables).

In both postgraduate taught and postgraduate research we focus on the number of students starting a postgraduate programme in each academic year.

This is a change to our previous approach. It is due to a number of changes to reporting practice within HESA student data. For the purposes of this analysis, the entrant population allows us to consider a more robust time series.
