The information published on these pages shows:

  • The number of applications for admission on to recognised, undergraduate higher education courses that we have received from UK domiciled applicants.
  • The number of offers we have made in relation to those applications.
  • The number of those offers accepted and the number of those who have registered with us.
  • 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 also shows these numbers by reference to:

  • The gender of the individuals to which they relate
  • Their ethnicity
  • Their socio-economic background.

It is important to note that the data presented has not been contextualised. This means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how many of those applying to courses met the entry criteria. It is also the case that universities and colleges will often receive many more applications than they have spaces on courses and so offer rates will necessarily be lower than application rates in those circumstances.

Although the presence in our portfolio of a few highly competitive courses, such as in Nursing or Healthcare, can skew results for some demographic groups, we are committed to ensuring that all suitably qualified applicants are given equality of consideration. The University of Huddersfield has a small number of such courses, which attract large numbers of applicants for relatively small numbers of places.  A higher proportion of potential students from particular ethnicities have traditionally applied for these courses than for other less competitive courses in our portfolio.
