Of those omitted, 94% were Reformed A Levels. Also excluded were a collection of Level 3 Diplomas and Certificates. This has resulted in errors to tariff scores for these students.

  • Other undergraduate students (2017/18)

    In 2017/18, The University of Law saw a significant increase in its other undergraduate student numbers on designated courses with course aim (H60) Graduate diploma/certificate at level H (an increase of 1480 FPE). This increase is due to coverage changes of the Alternative Provider Student record.
