5. Full-time equivalent (FTE) data for FE students at The Arts Institute at Bournemouth is not available to HESA.
6. Figures only include those students whose age is known.
7. Figures relating to part-time overseas domiciled students may include students studying largely overseas by distance learning who also visit the United Kingdom for part of their programme of study.
8. Students of unknown age or length of programme are included in total figures and percentage calculations but not in separate breakdowns.
9. Students of unknown UK domicile are included in total UK figures, but not in separate breakdowns
10. Students of overseas domicile, but whose country is unknown are included in total figures but not separate breakdowns.
11. 'Other overseas' includes the 38 overseas countries that have the most students studying in the UK, from a selected list.
12. Students whose ethnicity is not known include those who have been coded 'information refused' and 'information not yet sought'.
13. An unseen disability means for example, diabetes, epilepsy or asthma.
14. The University of Cambridge does not classify its B.A. degree, but awards classes in the Tripos (honours) examinations usually taken at the end of each academic year. Therefore the class of degree recorded on the HESA record is the best class obtained and not necessarily that obtained in the final year. As a result of this the numbers of first class and upper second class degrees are slightly inflated.
