The data, based on applications received by 31 July 2014, are correct as at 7 October 2014.
- There was a slight decrease in the number of successful applications in 2013/14 compared with 2012/13. This resulted in £8.0 million being paid out in ALGs to FE students in 2013/14, compared to the £8.2 million that was paid out in 2012/13.
- In total, 8,630 students in FE applied for an ALG in 2013/14 and of these 7,515 applications were successful, similar to previous years.
- The breakdown of successful applications across full-time and part-time students was similar to recent years. 6,540 (87 per cent) of successful applications were from full-time students and 900 (12 per cent) of successful applications were from part-time students.
- Successful applications(a) equate to 87 per cent of applications received. This proportion has increased steadily from 79 per cent in 2008/09. The proportion of successful applications from full-time students continues to remain very high at around 97 per cent over the last five years whilst the proportion of part-time students has increased from 74 per cent in 2008/09 to 88 per cent in 2013/14.
- 5,235 (80 per cent) of successful full-time applications and 745 (83 per cent) of successful part-time applications were from students with a residual income of £6,120 or less, and were therefore awarded the full grant amounts of £1,500 and £750 respectively. These proportions have changed little since 2008/09, however the residual income bands have changed over time.
- 2,925 (45 per cent) of successful full-time applications and 165 (19 per cent) of successful part-time applications were from students aged 21 or under.
(a) 80 (1 per cent) of successful applications were from students where the mode of study was ‘unknown’.
