These interactive charts use data from our 'Universities and Social Mobility' report with the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Explore how social mobility varies by university, subject and individual courses.
Hovering over or tapping a dot will show you more details about the university, course or subject you are looking at. Filter using university/subject types and dropdown menus to only view specific categories you are interested in, and tables can be sorted by clicking on the column name.
Data is drawn from the Department for Education's Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) dataset.
The access rate is defined as the proportion of students who were eligible for Free School Meals at age 16. The success rate is the proportion of this group who then entered the top 20% of incomes at age 30.
For universities with small numbers of disadvantaged students (fewer than 6), access and success rates will appear blank.
Access rates for mid 2000s cohort includes those starting university up to and including the age of 20, while for the mid 2010s figures, those starting at age 20 were not possible to include.
The ‘Other Measures’ tab includes a variety of adjusted mobility rates for the mid 2000s cohort, taking into account the characteristics of student intakes, a geographical adjustment taking into account the cost of living where a graduate resides, as well as rates for graduates entering the top 40% of incomes and the top 5% of incomes.
