Postgraduate Education

Volume 489: debated on Friday 13 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what proportion of people who obtained postgraduate qualifications in each of the last 10 years were in each socio-economic grouping at the time they started their postgraduate course. (263411)

Information on the socio-economic group of postgraduate students is not held centrally. Socio-economic group information is held for full-time undergraduate students, as it is collected as part of the UCAS application process. Postgraduates apply directly to institutions, rather than through UCAS, so this information is not collected.
