RA3a: Research student details

Field descriptions

Full-time

This is the head count of students on research-based higher degrees for whom the year of programme of study falling on 1 December in each of 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000 is full-time.

Part-time

This is the head count of students on research-based higher degrees for whom the year of programme of study falling on 1 December in each of 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000 is part-time.

FTE

A general definition of the Full-time equivalent (FTE) is that it ‘refers to the amount of study undertaken in the year of programme of study compared to a full-time student with the same qualification aim studying for a full year.

FTE values are positive numbers expressed to two decimal places (e.g. 0.67), with a maximum of 1.00 FTE being assigned per member of staff.

Total FTE

The total FTE =Full-time headcount + Part-time FTE

See the ‘Full-time’ paragraph above, for a definition of the full-time headcount.

In this case, the part-time FTE is the FTE of students on research-based higher degrees for whom the year of programme of study falling on 1 December in each of 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000 is part-time. The FTE is for the year of programme of study falling on the relevant date and is not an estimate of the students activity on the date.

Masters degrees awarded

This is the total number of research Masters degrees awarded (the date of approval for conferment of the degree rather than the subsequent award ceremony) in calendar years 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000.

Doctoral degrees awarded

This is the total number of research doctoral degrees awarded (the date of approval for conferment of the degree rather than the subsequent award ceremony) in calendar years 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000.
