Note 1. The HESA Standard Registration Population was changed in 2007/08 to exclude writing-up and sabatical students. These students are included in the tables for earlier years, which are therefore not comparable with those for 2007/08 and later. This change only affects the Student Enrolment tables and does not affect Qualifications Obtained or Destinations of Leavers tables. The Student Enrolment SFRs for 2007/08 to 2009/10 include data for previous years which has been re-calculated according to the new standard registration population. For example the 2005/06 student numbers in SFR142 are different from the 2005/06 student numbers in SFR117. See the definitions in SFR130 for more details.

Note 2. The SFRs for student enrolments in 1998/99 to 2001/02 counted student enrolments as at 1 December of the academic year. From 2005/06 students are counted regardless of whether they are active on 1 December of the reporting period. See the definitions in SFR107 for more details.

Note 3. The HESA Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) Survey was first undertaken in 2002/03 and included leavers from both full-time and part-time study. In previous years the 'First Destinations Survey' only surveyed leavers from full-time study. See the definitions in SFR65 and SFR77 for more details.

Note 4. The DLHE Survey questionnaire was changed for 2011/12. The results of the surveys after this date are not comparable with those from previous years. See the changes document for details.
