OfS Transparency Return

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.

It shows these numbers by reference to:

  • The gender of the individuals to which they relate
  • Their ethnicity
  • Their socioeconomic background, as measured by the English Indices of Multiple Deprivation (EIMD) 2019.

We review disparities in student outcomes across demographic characteristics on a regular basis and this informs our approach to delivering on our Access & Participation Plan. More information can be found in our Access & Participation Plan.

Rounding and suppression

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'.

Percentages will be rounded according to the smallest, unsuppressed denominator in a given mode and characteristic. If the denominator rounds to:

  • 50 or less: percentages are rounded to 5%
  • 1,000 or less: percentages are rounded to 1%
  • More than 1,000: percentages are rounded to 0.1%

'N/A' is displayed where there is no provision in a given mode or level.

'DP' indicates suppression 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.
