Pieces of Data Collected
- Our Data selection criteria -

Selection Criteria Students who applied through Clearing to start University for the 2016/2017 academic year.
Data Selection The data was collected via an online survey tool.
Data Sharing Each institution which took part has access to the data completed by their students, but not the raw data. The benchmarking report includes data from all institutions taking part, but does not include any data which names an individual institution or individual student.



- The Process -


The Insights Team created a personalised survey, landing page and T&Cs for each University that took part.

Each University was required to send the landing page (which included a link to the survey) to all students who applied to their University via Clearing to start the academic year.

The survey opened Monday 18th August 2016 and closed on 21st October 2016.

The results have been analysed by the Insights Team to produce the National Clearing Survey 2016 Report.
