  • Non-continuation (2019/20 publication)

    Leeds Conservatoire and Hartpury University joined the sector in 2018/19. The data for both providers relating to projected outcomes in Table T5 has been suppressed as the provision is new and hence there are insufficient students in each year to inform a robust projection (applicable to table T5).

  • Non-continuation (2019/20 publication)

    UK College of Business and Computing transferred students to a partner provider during the 2019/20 academic year, their figures have been supressed and shown as nulls in Table T3a-c but are included in the total figures

  • Non-continuation notes (2012/13 publication)

    From 1 August 2012, the University of Huddersfield's campus at Oldham (including the majority of its students) were transferred to Oldham College. This means that the majority of students returned as studying at the Oldham Campus in 2011/12 were shown as transferring to another institution in 2012/13. This may have an impact on the non-continuation UK performance indicators with the completion rates for students at the campus (and the University overall) showing a decrease in the proportion of those continuing or qualifying at the same HE provider.

    The non-continuation following year of entry data from London South Bank University was suppressed in table T3 in the 2011/12 publication as the University was unable to record activity of students on a number of courses. As a result, their data have been excluded from table T4 in the 2012/13 publication (applicable to table series T4).

    The data for Birkbeck College relating to projected outcomes in Table T5 has been suppressed in 2012/13 as the provision is relatively new and hence there are insufficient students in each year to inform a robust projection (applicable to table T5).

    Leeds College of Art transferred to the HE sector in 2011/12. There is currently insufficient data on the HESA record to inform transitions and therefore data in T5 has been suppressed in 2012/13 (applicable to table T5).

    The non-continuation rates for the University of Brighton have been overstated due to incorrect coding of a cohort as aiming for a first degree (applicable to table T3e).

  • Non-continuation notes (2013/14 publication)

    From 1 August 2013, the University of Huddersfield campus at Barnsley (including the majority of its students), were transferred to Barnsley College. This means that the majority of students returned as studying at the Barnsley Campus in 2012/13 were shown as transferring to another HE provider in 2013/14. This is likely to have an impact on the non-continuation UK performance indicators with the completion rates for students at the campus (and the university overall) showing a decrease in the proportion of those continuing or qualifying at the same HE provider.

    The data for Birkbeck College and Institute of Education relating to projected outcomes in Table T5 have been suppressed in 2013/14 as the provision is relatively new and hence there are insufficient students in each year to inform a robust projection (applicable to table T5).

    Leeds College of Art transferred to the HE sector in 2011/12. There is currently insufficient data on the HESA record to inform transitions and therefore data in T5 have been suppressed in 2013/14 (applicable to table T5).

    The University of Exeter’s Dentistry students were transferred to Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry in 2012/13. Both tables T3a and T3c of the UK Performance Indicators show an unusually high number of mature students transferring institution from the University of Exeter. This refers to these Dentistry students (who due to the graduate entry nature of the course are very likely to be mature i.e. over 21 on entry), who transferred to Plymouth as part of the separation of the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry (applicable to tables T3a, T3c).

    The proportion of students transferring between HE providers is inflated for Queen Mary University of London due to the formal transfer of a cohort of 20 students taught at the University of London Institute in Paris from Queen Mary University of London to Royal Holloway (applicable to table T3a-T3c, T5).

    Data for the University of Plymouth has been suppressed due to the transfer of 50 students to City of Bristol College who are not included in the transfer figures as City of Bristol College is not within the UK Performance Indicators (applicable to table T3d).

    The proportion of students transferring between HE providers is inflated for the University of Liverpool due to the formal transfer of a cohort of 50 students taught at Lancaster University from the University of Liverpool to Lancaster University (applicable to table T3a-T3c, T5).

    Data for The University of Brighton has been suppressed due to the incorrect coding of a group of students on courses delivered at a partner college as dormant, rather than having successfully completed (applicable to table T3d).

  • Non-continuation notes (2014/15 publication)

    Data for the University of Brighton have been suppressed in table T3d in the 2014/15 publication due to the incorrect coding of qualification obtained for a group of students (applicable to table T3d).

    Data for the University of Plymouth was suppressed in table T3d in the 2013/14 publication due to the transfer of 50 students to City of Bristol College who are not included in the transfer figures as City of Bristol College are not within the UK Performance Indicators. As a result, their data has been excluded from table T4b in the 2014/15 publication (applicable to table T4b).

    Data for the University of Brighton were suppressed in table T3d in the 2013/14 publication due to the incorrect coding of a group of students on courses delivered at a partner college as dormant, rather than having successfully completed. As a result, their data has been excluded from table T4b in the 2014/15 publication (applicable to table T4b).

    Due to some students on first degree courses in 2013/14 being incorrectly recorded in 2014/15, the proportion with ‘not known’ outcome for the University of Stirling is higher than it should be. This in turn means that the other proportions will be lower than they should be (applicable to table T5).

  • Non-continuation notes (2015/16 publication)

    Due to an error The University of Brighton did not return qualification information for approximately 10 mature entrants which has affected the table T3a and T3c indicators for those with previous higher education qualifications (applicable to tables T3a and T3c).

    Data for the The University of Brighton was suppressed in table T3d in the 2014/15 publication due to the incorrect coding of qualification obtained for a group of students. As a result, their data has been excluded from table T4b in the 2015/16 publication (applicable to table T4b).

    Due to a technical issue the The University of Strathclyde under-reported end dates in their 2014/15 student records. This means that some students who left before 1 December 2014 are included in the data leading to the percentages no longer in HE being higher than they should be. This impacts on table T3a and for mature entrants with previous HE qualifications on table T3c. For accurate figures please contact the University of Strathclyde directly ([email protected]) (applicable to tables T3a and T3c).

    The figures include students whose provision is supported through additional places funded by the Scottish Funding Council to increase levels of articulation. The first year or two of the students’ studies is spent at a further education college. The level of non-continuation of such students can be noticeably different, usually higher, than those who start their studies at a university. The University of the West of Scotland was allocated the highest number of additional places, 200, for this scheme. In addition the University reported even more entrants to this scheme in 2014/15 to take account of previous students supported by these places who did not continue. Having these additional enrolments results in the percentage no longer in HE of all their UK domiciled full-time first degree entrants increasing from 15.4% to 15.8% (applicable to table T3a).

    The continuation rate for Fairfield School of Business is slightly higher than presented in Table T3d. This is as a consequence of incorrect commencement data being submitted for a small number of undergraduate students (applicable to Experimental Statistics table T3d).

  • Non-continuation notes (2016/17 publication)

    The proportion of students transferring to other Higher Education providers appears high for SRUC because the responsibility for running some of their provision transferred to another institution in 2016/17. Without this transfer the overall percentage transferring in table T3a would have been 0.4%, while the percentages for young and mature entrants would have been 0.5% and 0.0% respectively and the overall percentage transferring in table T3c would have been 0% (applicable to tables T3a and T3c).
    The projected outcomes are not shown for SRUC as these are affected by the responsibility for running some of their provision transferring to another institution in 2016/17. Student progression between 2015/16 and 2016/17 is not typical and therefore not appropriate for projecting future outcomes (applicable to table T5).

    Due to data coding issues relating to this indicator, Stranmillis University College has been excluded from this analysis (applicable to table T5).

    Data for The University of Salford has been excluded from table T5 and is currently being investigated (applicable to table T5).

  • State school indicator (2014/15 publication)

    From 2014/15, for new entrants, the last provider attended field (PREVINST) must contain a valid UKPRN or a valid generic code (see the HESA coding manual for details), rather than the historic UCAS, department and HESA school codes. These have been mapped to school type and grouped up to form the state school marker where appropriate. Where an unknown or invalid PREVINST code has been supplied, these students have been excluded from the calculations of the state school indicator. Due to the changes in the coding frame there is likely to an impact on the quality of the school type data.
