Dear Durham University,

I am writing to you to request disclosure of the proportion of students physically studying at your UK campus out of your overall 2020 enrolment.

Specifically, could you please provide:
- Your overall student enrolment at your UK campus (to the nearest one hundred) for your 2020 intake;
- The number of these that have opted to study remotely (to the nearest one hundred) for your 2020 intake;

Overall student recruitment information should now be available from your central admissions team. Estimates of students studying remotely should now be available based on those who have physically registered as being on campus vs those who have informed you that they will be studying remotely.

Yours faithfully,

Brian Jones

Dear Brian Jones

 

Thank you for your request for information from Durham University. 
Colleagues have provided the information below in response to your
questions.

 

I am writing to you to request disclosure of the proportion of students
physically studying at your UK campus out of your overall 2020 enrolment.

 

Specifically, could you please provide:

- Your overall student enrolment at your UK campus (to the nearest one
hundred) for your 2020 intake;

- The number of these that have opted to study remotely (to the nearest
one hundred) for your 2020 intake;

 

Overall student recruitment information should now be available from your
central admissions team. Estimates of students studying remotely should
now be available based on those who have physically registered as being on
campus vs those who have informed you that they will be studying remotely.

 

·         20,000   overall students enrolled for the 2020-21 academic year
at the Durham Campus (i.e. Excludes distance learning)

·         2,500     number of those students who have chosen the Online
Teaching Only option for the Michaelmas Term

 

All data has been rounded following the HESA guidelines
[1]https://www.hesa.ac.uk/about/regulation/...

 

For contextual information the Online Teaching Only option was only
available for students to sign up to for the Michaelmas Term, but this
will be opened again shortly for students to sign-up for the Epiphany
Term.
