    (Heythrop College is also a college of University of London, but is not included in HESA statistics as it is not publicly-funded.)

    In addition, the institutes within the umbrella of University of London (Institutes and activities) are:

  2. The list of institutions in the HESA reference volumes for 1999/2000 has changed and the following institutions are no longer shown separately:
    • Westhill College
    • St. Andrew’s College of Education
  3. The following institutions are now shown separately, they were previously included in the figures for The Queen’s University of Belfast.
    • Stranmillis University College
    • St. Mary’s University College
  4. As a result of the increased length of the undergraduate pharmacy course from 3 years to 4 years, there has been a significant decrease in the number of qualifications obtained in 1999/2000. This is particularly evident in The School of Pharmacy undergraduate qualifications obtained figure.
  5. 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.
  6. It is known that qualifications obtained were unavailable for The College of Guidance of Studies.
  7. It is known that PGCE qualifications obtained were under-reported for Liverpool Hope.
  8. There have been some significant mergers between HE and FE colleges since 1998/99.
  9. 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.
