Postgraduate entrants at English HEFCE-funded HEIs in 2014-15 and 2015-16


About the charts

The bar chart and table show combined data for the years 2014-15 and 2015-16 postgraduate entrants at English HEFCE- funded HEIs. The specific coverage of data shown on the chart is decided by the selections made in the dropdown boxes.

Primary characteristic selects the first characteristic the user is interested in.

Secondary characteristic will then split the first characteristics into the categories relevant to this second characteristic for example, if the user selects age then sex the bar chart will show how many female 21-25 year olds there are etc.

Level allows the user to focus on PGR or PGT students. 

Mode allows the user to select full-time (FT) or part-time (PT) students.
