Undergraduate courses taken by Jersey students (FOI)

Undergraduate courses taken by Jersey students (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 08 March 2017.


I would like to know what undergraduate courses Jersey students have studied in the last two years please and their colleges. I do not require their personal information.


The following data only includes students who have registered with Student Finance at the Education Department. There are further students studying undergraduate courses in the United Kingdom and abroad who do not apply for funding, about whom no data is held.

The data also excludes students who are studying via distance learning, for example through the Open University.

Due to the small number of Jersey students attending certain universities / colleges or studying certain course types, some data is considered disclosive, ie it may be possible to identify someone and / or learn something about them from the dataset.

This information is therefore absolutely exempt under Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 and for this reason, any cell that represents fewer than 10 students has been denoted with ‘<10’. Universities / colleges and course types with fewer than 10 students in both of the last two years have been omitted from the data. The total number of these students can be found at the bottom of the tables.
