The Office for Students (OfS) ‘student characteristics: outcomes data dashboard’ shows data broken down by student characteristics across all OfS-registered English Higher Education providers. A link to the dashboard can be found here: https://www.officeforstudents.org.uk/data-and-analysis/student-characteristics-data/outcomes-data-dashboard/.

Upon selecting the student characteristic ‘Age (detailed)’, the table shows the completion rate breakdown of full-time undergraduate entrants from the 2010/11 to 2017/18 academic years by age on entry.
