The Queen's University of Belfast reported a number (955)
of unknown domiciles, mostly on short credit bearing courses
within their Open Learning Programme. Consequently the number
of Northern Irish students in Northern Ireland institutions may

degrees as ordinary degrees, showing in the tables as
unclassified awards. Therefore the numbers of unclassified
awards are artificially inflated.
