Footnotes

  1. EFTS claimed for wholly research-based programmes of study in which a student's work is supervised and results in the production of a substantial research output. To qualify for this higher level of postgraduate funding, the research component of the programme of study must be equivalent to at least 1.0 EFTS.
  2. There is a very significant increase in international students enrolling in PhDs for the first time in 2006 as a result of changed government policy in respect to the funding of NZ based international students undertaking PhD study
  3. A change in the process of recording qualifications completions has occurred.  Some qualifications that would previously have been recorded as completing in 2005 are recorded as completing in 2006.
  4. There has been a change in the mechanism for counting number of quality-assured research outputs. The University's database of research outputs is continually being updated, with information backdated according to the year of publication. The figures listed for this indicator will continue to be subject to historical adjustment.
  5. For the purposes of this indicator, retention means enrolment by students in consecutive years.
