Returnee graduates (FOI)

Returnee graduates (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 24 March 2016.


I am requesting data on the number of local students that the SoJ are aware of who are studying a degree, and data on returnee graduates.

How many Jersey students are undertaking degree or post graduate studies; making a distinction between UK, Jersey, and international (i.e. Australia, etc)

Of the Jersey students that have undertaken a degree abroad how many have returned (per year).


The number of Jersey students undertaking degree or post graduate studies in Jersey, the UK, and outside Jersey and the UK are shown in the table below:

​Years​Jersey​UK​Outside the UK and Jersey
​2006 to 2007​158​1,375​5
​2007 to 2008​95​1,328​4
​2008 to 2009​35​1,286​17
​2009 to 2010​32​1,252​23
​2010 to 2011​78​1,196​30
​2011 to 2012​118​1,196​24
​2012 to 2013​130​1,201​38
​2013 to 2014​161​1,137​32
​2014 to 2015​146​990​34
​2015 to 2016​155​948​30

These figures include students that have registered with Student Finance only.

The numbers of former students that have paid contributions to the Social Security Department since their graduation are shown in the table below:

​Number of graduates paying contributions in:
Year​Number of graduates​20062007​2008​2009​​20102011​​20122013​​2014​2015

These figures include students that have registered with Student Finance only.

The figures for 2010 are slightly different to those provided in a previous response as a fuller data set was provided on this occasion.

This data only shows the number of graduates paying contributions and does not show those living on-island who are not paying contributions, eg a parent may not be working whilst they have young children.
