UCAS: unconditional offers data to be made public

Information showing which providers make the most unconditional offers to prospective students is to be published by the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service.

In its annual end-of-cycle data release, published each January, UCAS will detail how many unconditional offers are being made by universities. The numbers have increased significantly in recent years: in July the admissions body revealed that the proportion of students who received unconditional offers jumped from just 1 per cent in 2013 to 23 per cent in 2018.

A spokesman for UCAS told HE that the decision to include the data was due to increased public interest in unconditional offers. He said: “Unconditional offers can be made for a variety of reasons, so it’s important that complete, relevant sets of data are published. Universities may also need to provide necessary context of their figures when they are published for the first time.”
