Higher Education Performance Indicators, 2009/10
Based on the HESA publication, this Statistical Bulletin includes data for Welsh Higher Education Institutions at a national level up to the 2009/10 academic year. The bulletin updates the statistics previously released on 16 April 2010.
The performance indicators are designed to provide reliable information on the nature and performance of the higher education sector in the UK and a consistent set of measures of this performance. The performance indicators broadly cover widening participation, non-continuation rates and outcomes. Indicators relate to higher education institutions in the individual countries of the UK.
Key results from the performance indicators for Welsh HEIs are:
- The percentage of young, full-time, first degree students entering HE from state schools or colleges in 2009/10 was 93.2 per cent (88.8 per cent for UK HEIs).
- The percentage of young full-time first degree entrants from low socio-economic backgrounds (NS-SEC Classes 4-7) was 30.2 per cent in 2009/10, similar to the UK comparable figure (30.0 per cent).
- In 2009/10, 9.8 per cent (10.3 per cent UK) of young full-time first degree entrants and 13.3 per cent (11.9 per cent UK) of mature full-time first degree entrants came from “low participation neighbourhoods”.
- The percentage of full-time first degree entrants in 2008/09 who did not continue in HE following their year of entry (i.e. drop-out or non-continuation) was 6.1 per cent for young entrants and 11.9 per cent for mature entrants. Both figures were lower than the comparable figures for the UK.
Comparisons with individual UK countries are contained in the Bulletin. This information can also be found on StatsWales.
