|Description:||Student FTE represents the institution's best academic judgement of the full-time equivalence of the student (for this record) during the reporting year 01 August - 31 July.|
|Notes:|| Full-time, full year students would normally be returned as 100.00 and part-time students returned as a proportion of an equivalent full-time course. Comparisons and weightings of different full-time, full year programmes of study are not expected. The proportion of part-time study can be estimated on either a 'time' or a 'credit' basis.|
Please see Appendix 10 for further detailed notes.
|Example:|| A student studying the equivalent of a three year course over five years would be returned as 060.0.|
A student studying 30 credits in the current year, in the case where 120 credits is the norm for a full-time student, would be returned as 025.0.
|Reason Required:|| To give a more accurate assessment of the contribution of non-full time study than can be obtained by the use of arbitrary multipliers.|
Allows analysis by full-time equivalents as well as by headcounts. FTEs may be used in publications and for projections, planning and monitoring of the sector.
|A percentage in the range 000.0 to 300.0. Please see the 'Notes of Guidance' for a description of the format.|
