Transparency Information

The tables on this page show information on the number of applications through to registrations and on degree attainment for Coventry University Group grouped by three different demographic measures.

The University is required to publish this information by the Office for Students. All the numbers relate to Undergraduate degrees and are for UK domiciled students only.

The information published on these pages shows: 

  • The number of applications for admission on to higher education courses that we have received
  • 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 registered and went on to complete their course 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 socioeconomic 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.

Tables 1a and 1b

Tables 1a and 1b show the number of applications made to the institution, how many offers have been made as a result of those applications, how many of those offers were accepted and how many of those acceptances led to registration on a course. Table 1b (available via "Transparency information 2019") gives more detailed information behind the summary present in Table 1a. The numbers presented cover applications to and registrations on undergraduate degrees for the 2018/19 academic year and are for UK domiciled applicants only.
