Part-time students drop a 40% in England

Redacción

 One third of England´s undergraduate population studies part-time, and the importance of part-time study for the economy and social mobility is widely recognised.

But it faces a challenging and uncertain future, largely, Lady Bakewell says, because of the government´s introduction of higher tuition fees and the failure to communicate the new loan system effectively to prospective part-time students.

Statistics released recently by the Higher Education Funding Council for England show that since 2010, across England, part-time undergraduate numbers have fallen by 40%, while part-time postgraduate numbers fell 27%. Birkbeck says it has seen falls in its own student numbers of a similar magnitude.
