Information about the data displayed

This information is for all levels of study and modes of delivery. 

This data comes from the end of year dataset compiled by the University's Planning Office and is a headcount of all students who were enrolled on a course in the relevant year. The year mentioned in the tables is the academic year running from 1 August to 31 July. The end of year dataset is therefore a snapshot of the student population at 31 July each year, over the past 3 years.

In most cases a student will only be counted once in an academic year but it is possible for a student to be enrolled on more than one course (hence possibly in more than one department) within the same year. In this case the student will be counted once for each course (department).

Requests for further data which do not fall under the Freedom of Information act can be directed to reporting@le.ac.uk. If you wish to request data under the Freedom of Information act please contact IAS@le.ac.uk.
