The latest data published by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) for the academic year 2018/19 is shown in the attached table.

Information on the type of school that entrants to the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge have come from is only published for entrants under the age of 21. This is because the data collected is the previous educational provider that was attended by the entrant. Therefore, for mature students entering the University of Oxford or the University of Cambridge, this may relate to study subsequent to key stage 5.
