Higher Education: Admissions

Volume 508: debated on Wednesday 24 March 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how many (a) places there were available at and (b) applications there were to each higher education establishment in London in each academic year from 2005-06 to 2009-10; and what estimate he has made of the number of (i) places available at and (ii) applications to each of those establishments in 2010-11. (323783)

A table detailing the number of accepted applicants and applications to full-time undergraduate courses at each higher education institution (HEI) in Greater London via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) in each academic year from 2005/06 to 2009/10 will be placed in the libraries of the House.

The number of places available at each institution is not available centrally, so the number of applicants who were successful in gaining a place has been given. ‘Applications’ in the tables refers to each application that has been made to a course at one of these institutions; applicants could make up to six applications on their UCAS form up to 2007, and up to five from 2008.

The Department does not hold an estimate of the number of places available at each establishment for academic year 2010/11, or the final number of applications or accepted applicants for institutions. The following table, which was published by UCAS, contains the number of applications which had been made by 22 January 2010 for 2010/11 year of entry.
