Institution types

 

Due to confidentiality constraints, UCAS is unable to provide data at institutional level.  However HEIs have been grouped to examine whether there were differences in the treatment of IB applicants between these groups. The institutional type groupings were supplied by IB (Appendix B).

Table 3.1 shows the number of applications made by IB applicants to each institution type and Chart 3.1 shows the proportion of all applications by institution type.
