The data includes student headcount and FTE (Full-time equivalent) and is based on the snapshot data taken from the University of Warwick’s student records system (SITS) on the 31st of October in each academic year. The data will be updated by mid-November each year following the snapshot, and then again in February, May and August.

The data excludes students who were not active (e.g. temporarily withdrawn; resitting without residence) on the relevant snapshot date. Students on joint courses are included within the home department for their programme.

Included in the data are students enrolled on all undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research courses, studying either full-time, part-time or writing up. Key exclusions are those on validated courses, non-credit bearing provision, visiting and exchange students, those studying on the International Foundation Programme, or those registered on Certificates or Postgraduate Awards.

‘Age’ marker distinguishes between young and mature students as below:

  • Young – if undergraduate students are under 21 and postgraduate students are under 25 on entry.
  • Mature – if undergraduate students are 21 or over and postgraduate students are 25 or over on entry.
