Student Statistics are produced each academic year (based on the 1st December census date) and are available at the link below. Any additional external requirements for information should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Census Date for Data
Statistics shown for students and staff are as at 1st December of each year (the 'Census Date' of the Funding Council).
Use of Data
Student numbers and load data for each academic year feeds into the annual planning process and forms the basis for projected numbers and load.
A department's student numbers are the number of students registered for degrees based in that department. Students on joint honours courses split between two departments count as 0.5 to each department.
Student load reflects where students spend their taught time. The total student load for each full-time student will normally be 1.0.
Student load is derived from the module details held on the student records system.
More detailed notes on student load are included in the Student Load section of Undergrduate Statistics.
Staff numbers are provided by Human Resources.
College / Campus Numbers
Discrepancies between undergraduate student tables (by campus) and college student tables (by college) are students whose programmes of study are based on one campus (eg. Durham), but whose college affiliation is based at another campus (eg. George Stephenson).
