How many Scottish domiciled students were admitted to your institution to study an undergraduate degree in each of the last six academic years? I would like this information broken down by degree programme.

Good evening,

I wanted to send a clarification on a couple of points based on a query I received from a different institution:

1. I am only seeking information relating to the number of new students being admitted to an undergraduate degree programme. ie, whichever year they are entering at - as i realise some will start in year 1 and others may leapfrog into a higher year to begin with. I am not seeking info relating to continuing students going into 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year.

2. By admitted i refer to the number of (new) students who took up a place at the institution (or enrolled/registered) in each academic year.

Kind regards,
elizabeth thomson

Good afternoon,

Many thanks for your reply. Can i just clarify that the numbers contained in this spreadsheet reflect the number of students who accepted a place and started studying, rather than the total number of applications.

Yours sincerely,
