Four in every five students complete their degree

The Higher Education Authority today published a study on the rates of completion of 34,059 students who entered Irish Universities, Institutes and Colleges full time at undergraduate level in the 2007/8 academic year. 

These students were tracked over the following ten years and the report finds that overall, 76% of them graduated within that period. 

At Level 8 Honours Degree Level, more than four in every five students completed with completion rates of 94% in the Colleges (Colleges of Education and NCAD), 83% in the Universities and 74% in the Institutes of Technology. 

At 62%, the levels of completion at level 6 and 7 programmes is lower, but that still means that more than three in five at this level complete their course.

Students on education and teaching courses are most likely to complete.
