Admissions and Recruitment Admissions and Recruitment

Current Admissions Position

Applications volume comparison Report – Live

Application by volume takes a snapshot at UG and PGT each Sunday, starting from the same starting point in October (week 1) and gives a direct comparison of activity compared to last year. These reports do not include applicants that applied before these dates for the entry years i.e. deferred applicants. These reports are best used to ascertain how we are performing in generating and converting applications compared to last year.

Expected Starter Volume Report

Application for entry year takes a snapshot at UG and PGT each Sunday and shows the building of applications, decisions and replies for anyone applying for September 2017 compared to September 2016. These reports WILL include deferred applications for either entry year from July 2014 onwards, therefore the amount of activity will be higher than the volume report.

Admissions Metrics

This product provides overall analysis of the Metrics for undergraduate admissions by benchmarking of application and accept volumes across subject types. Competitors are split by Actual (those we share applications with) and Aspirational (those ranked within the top 20 rank position for The Times Subject Leagues Tables).

Reasons for choice

We would recommend that your first port of call for getting to know this data is the detailed briefing note on the key findings and trends in reasons for choice at institutional, School and other subgroup level that you can access on the BIU Blackboard site (Data by theme/ Admissions and Recruitment/ Market Research/ Reasons for choice).
