Notes
Numbers for each academic year are based on the extract of data from the University student records system on the census date of 1 December for students who were active (not 
intermitting their studies) on that census date.
Numbers are for students entering full-time undergraduate study in a given academic year irrespective of the year of course they might be entering, i.e. affiliated students start from the 
second year of course but are counted as entrants in the year in which they start
The dataset does not include 2005-06 and 2006-07 academic years, as due to the implementation of the new student records system in those years, the data for those years might not be 
of sufficient quality
