To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on reports that there are 1,770 fewer full-time students in colleges in 2016-17 compared with the previous year.
Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 4 November 2016
The number of college student enrolments on full-time recognised qualifications is published by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) in the National Statistics publication ‘College Performance Indicators’.
Data for 2016-17 is not available as the most recent publication covers 2014-15.
