Publication of Oxford Undergraduate Admissions data
Today has seen the publication of a new annual report of Oxford Admissions data. It is great to see the recent increases in the University’s intake of UK domiciled state sector candidates (from 56.8 to 58.2%), the increased proportion of students identifying as BME (from 13.9% to 17.9%), and increased proportions of students from areas of socio-economic disadvantage (from 6.8% to 10.6%) and from areas of low progression to higher education (from 9.5% to 12.9%). Many colleges have very positive stories to tell about the success of their outreach work, and it is wonderful to hear today that the University has funding (due to the generous support of Sir Michael Moritz and Harriet Heyman) to expand UNIQ by 500 places, so that many more students can join the University’s summer and Easter residential courses.
Mansfield’s own figures are part of this overall rise. In the three-year averages we have the highest proportion of students from the state sector (88.2% state, although in our most recent admissions round our offers are 95.9% state sector). Mansfield also has the third highest proportion of students identifying as BME (19.3%), the highest proportion of black students (3.5%), the highest proportion of students from areas of socio-economic disadvantage (12.9%) and the highest proportion of students from areas of low progression to higher education (17.0%). On a range of range of measures we have reason to be very proud of the success of Mansfield’s outreach work, and of the care our tutors put into the selection of candidates.
