Private contributions to tuition fees were introduced in 1998/99 therefore no data are available for academic year 1997/98.

Up to 2002/03, data were collected from LEAs to produce national estimates and the data collection exercise did not allow for the production of firm figures below this level; data at local education authority or regional level are therefore not available for 2001/02.
