Because we want our student population to be diverse and include applicants of all backgrounds, we use contextual information when we consider applications, and your postcode is included in that.

There's lots of research to show that factors such as where you live, and the type of school you attend, can have an impact on your achievements. We use contextual information from your application to consider what you have achieved so far, in the context of your individual background and experience.

In particular, if you live in an area where people are less likely to go to university, you might be eligible for a contextual offer.
