Student Numbers

Mr. Willis: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many (a) full-time and (b) part-time students were studying on recognised courses at level (i) 2, (ii) 3 and (iii) 4 in (A) further education colleges, (B) universities and (C) institutions of higher education in each year since 1997. [127842]

Bill Rammell: Figures for those participating in further education (FE) can be derived from the individualised learner record (ILR). The FE ILR was collated for the first time in 2002/03 and figures are presented from that time.
