Transparency Information

As part of registration with the Office for Students (OfS), universities are required to publish specific data about the students they admit in the interests of transparency. 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.

Loughborough is proud of its student experience, recognised as outstanding on multiple success measures, nevertheless we are not complacent. The University is committed to supporting students from underrepresented groups study at, succeed in, and progress from Loughborough. Following an extensive analysis of our current performance, we have identified a number of strategic aims designed to ensure that our campus becomes more representative of the country as a whole. You can read more about our approach in our Access and Participation Plan (APP).
