  1. Although 2019/20 entrants are outturn, 2019/20 loan-eligible entrants are partially forecast based on historic proportions of entrants eligible for tuition fee loans.
  2. Coverage: Full-time undergraduate England-domiciled entrants to UK providers and EU-domiciled entrants to providers in England. Included provider types are specifically: higher education institutions (HEIs) and designated alternative providers (APs) registered with the Office for Students (OfS) as an Approved (fee cap) provider; HEIs in the devolved administrations. Excluded provider types in England include further education colleges (FECs) and former non-designated APs registered as Approved (fee cap), as well as Approved providers. Excluded provider types in the devolved administrations include FECs and APs.
  3. Growth rates have been calculated on unrounded figures and are rounded to the nearest decimal place.
  4. Since 2017/18, nursing, midwifery and allied health profession (AHP) entrants have been part of the main student support system, making them eligible to receive tuition fee loans.
  5. Fee loan-eligible entrants are a subset of those student entrants eligible for tuition fee loans from Student Finance England.
