Educational Institutions: Standards

Volume 463: debated on Thursday 19 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills which educational institutions did not achieve their benchmark for completion rates in each of the last five years. (149781)

The relevant information is taken from table T5 of the Performance Indicators in Higher Education, published by HESA since 2002-03 and by HEFCE until 2001-02. This gives the proportion of UK-domiciled entrants to full-time first degree courses who are projected to neither obtain an award nor transfer to another course. The information is shown in the following tables.

The benchmarks are not targets. They are adjusted sector averages, calculated for each institution for each indicator, to help institutions gauge their own performance.
