Who's studying in HE?: Student numbers
Students on a sandwich course are expected to take six months or more out of their course to undertake work experience or study abroad. This table shows the total numbers of students on undergraduate sandwich courses (not the number who were actually away from the HE provider during the academic year in question).
Full-time equivalent (FTE) figures give a picture of the overall student load. For example a student on a part-time course that is 60% of a full-time course would be returned as 0.6 FTE.
This table shows students on courses leading to teaching qualifications.
56% of all undergraduate students in 2017/18 were female, but only 44% of sandwich students were female (an increase of 1% on 2016/17).
