Ensuring capacity and flexibility in the student number control

We have taken steps to ensure that institutions are able to offer fair access to all applicants:

  • We believe that we have provided all universities and colleges with sufficient numbers in their student number control to enable them to admit high-achieving students with qualifications which are not on the exemptions list, such as European qualifications. This should have also provided universities and colleges with the flexibility to make ‘contextual offers’ to students that are under-represented in higher education, if they so wished (that is, taking into account the context and circumstances in which the applicant is applying for higher education, including educational and socio-economic data, when making offers).
