Transparency Return Data

The 2021 Transparency information is produced by the Office for Students, based on data that the University provides to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

It shows the number of UK-domiciled undergraduate students who attained a degree on completion of their course with us in 2019/20, and the proportion obtaining each class (first, 2:1, etc), broken down by gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic background.

You can access the data here; ‌

No Transparency information was produced in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Prior to this, Transparency information also included data on applications, offers, acceptances and registrations for undergraduate courses. You can access the 2019 data here;
