Our annual transparency data return to the Office for Students

Norland College is required to make an annual transparency data return to the Office for Students, the independent regulator of higher education in England.

The information published on these pages shows:

  • The number of applications for admission on to recognised, undergraduate higher education courses that we have received from UK domiciled applicants
  • The number of offers we have made in relation to those applications
  • The number of those offers accepted and the number of those who have registered with us
  • The number of students who registered and went on to complete their course with us
  • The number of students who attained a particular degree or other academic award, or a particular level of such an award, on completion of their course with us

It also shows these numbers by reference to:

  • The gender of the individuals to which they relate
  • Their ethnicity
  • Their socioeconomic background

It is important to note that the data presented has not been contextualised. This means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how many of those applying to courses met the entry criteria. It is also the case that universities and colleges will often receive many more applications than they have spaces on courses, and so offer rates will necessarily be lower than application rates in those circumstances.

With regard to information that is split by the three characteristics of gender, ethnicity and socioeconomic background you will see that some figures may be highlighted. This is because those differences between groups of students with particular characteristics are notable.

Please note that we receive and welcome applications and students from a diverse range of backgrounds. However, as a small institution with an annual intake of only 100 first-year students, the numbers of applications and registrations from each group were fewer than the 25 required for this data return. Hence the return was indicated as ‘N’.
