Transparency Data

You will find a download link for the Transparency Data below.

In relation to Condition F1 of the Office for Students regulatory framework, 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. 

It must be noted that as the data relates to applications rather than applicants, the number of students included decreases from application to offers accepted based in some part on the proportion who apply for multiple courses in the first instance.  Within this dataset, 38,009 applicants made 40,392 applications – equivalent to 6% of applicants applying for more than one course. 

Further Information

At the University of Liverpool we have a long-standing track record of improving the social mobility of our students by enabling access to and participation in Higher Education.  The University’s success is rooted in creating opportunities for all of our students and we are proud of our reputation as one of the most successful Russell Group universities for widening participation.

However, to fully contribute to social mobility nationally, we will need to build on this reputation and have used the development of our Access and Participation Plan to think carefully about the best way to ensure that our university is a welcoming and secure place for students form a diverse range of backgrounds.

The most recent five year Access and Participation Plan can be found here.

Assessment of our performance is a continuous process within the University of Liverpool.  As part of our ongoing commitment to analysing the data we hold to best effect, we will be undertaking a full analysis of the outcomes of this data set.  Initial analysis has highlighted correlations between this data and the Access measures established as part of our Access and Participation Plan, to be addressed via the delivery of detailed planned activities.
