Information on applicants to undergraduate courses is collected by the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). The figures cover students who apply to full-time courses via UCAS, but they exclude students who apply to part-time courses and those who apply for full-time courses directly to institutions.
Data on the number of students living in the London borough of Bexley applying to full time undergraduate courses through UCAS are given in the table.
There is no comparable central organisation which processes applications for further education courses; students apply directly to the relevant FE institution.
