  1. Based on the student’s address at the time of the application.
  2. Figures are rounded to the nearest 5.
  3. Data for 2015/16 is effective 31/08/2016, this is still provisional as payments still happen following the end of the academic year.
  4. Batley & Spen Constituency and West Yorkshire have been derived from the home address (postcode region) of the student as stated on application for student finance.
