That's good news. I found the Which? Uni guide very useful when applying for uni, and I didn't realise it was set to close with all the content lost!

Really good news, the "Which? uni" content will be preserved through theUniguide.

Ive always preferred which over alternatives such as Guardian/CUG, these are probably the best resources for year 12 students to get a feel for a Uni/course combination.

Ive noticed the % of applicants receiving offers metric which was on Which Uni, hasn't been transferred as the other data has, is this feature gone permanently?

I imagine the licence purchasing that data from UCAS isn't transferable.

The newest data from UCAS should be available if TSRG put in a purchase (it's not cheap though). I hope they do as it helps to dispel a lot of myths around how selective courses are!

Good to know,
Hopefully TSRG can continue to share the data if the cost is not too much of a burden.

Agree with others that the Offer Rate data is missing and was one of the most useful features previously.

Will it be added?

Great that you're pleased. Hopefully we can nurture it well.

We'll have to have a look at this - thanks for flagging it up.

As PQ intimates, this data comes at a high cost ..:eek:.. a bit too much at the moment. It's definitely something we'll review regularly and come back to once The Uni Guide is settled and,hopefully, thriving.

Thanks for the update.

Would a previous year be cheaper? I don't imagine it changes much each year...

Yes, good idea. A bit like buying the 9th rather than 10th edition of a book which, to all intents and purposes, remains the same apart from a few more pretty illustrations and an updated reference list.
