To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many people from the Doncaster North constituency entered higher education institutions in the latest year for which figures are available; and how that figure compares with other constituencies.
Answer (Mr Sam Gyimah)
The Higher Education Statistics Agency collects and publishes statistics on students enrolled at UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). The latest statistics available refer to the 2016/17 academic year and are available at the following link: https://www.hesa.ac.uk/news/11-01-2018/sfr247-higher-education-student-statistics.
The table below provides counts of entrants to higher education courses at UK HEIs who were living in the Doncaster North parliamentary constituency prior to commencing their studies.
1) Figures in this table are rounded to the nearest multiple of five; figures may not sum to totals.
2) Constituency is derived from the student's postcode prior to study.
The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service publish data on the proportion of 18 year olds entering full-time undergraduate higher education from each parliamentary constituency. The latest data is contained in Figure 4.8 of their 2017 End of Cycle report: https://www.ucas.com/file/137236/download?token=LtrRkIaK.
For the 2017 application cycle, the entry rate for 18 year olds from Doncaster North constituency to full-time undergraduate study was 21.1%. This compares to an entry rate for England of 33.3%.
