The Education Department has determined that the courses studied and at which university is the personal information of the student in receipt of the Jersey Bursary, and therefore absolutely exempt under Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011.
The Education Department do not hold the information requested and therefore, cannot provide any detail on the numbers of students in receipt of a Jersey Bursary returning to the Island after completing their studies.

*The figure provided for the current year reflects the funding as provided to students receiving Jersey Bursaries in their first year. More funding from the Bursary will be supplied for Year 2 or in some cases, Year 3 of the Masters courses. It is considered likely that this figure will reach £125,000.
