The numbers of postgraduate and undergraduate qualifiers in medicine and nursing at UK higher education institutions are shown in the following table for the academic years 2002/03 to 2009/10. Due to a change in the subject coding system used by the Higher Education Statistics Agency comparable figures for earlier years are not available. Information for the 2010/11 academic year will become available from January 2012.

|(1) Covers qualifiers of all ages and domiciles from full-time and part-time courses. (2) Excludes the Open University due to their incorrect coding of subject information across the time series. Notes: 1. Figures are based on a HESA qualifications obtained population and are rounded up or down to the nearest five. 2. Subject information is shown as full person equivalents (FPEs) in the table. FPEs are derived by splitting student instances between the different subjects that make up their course aim. 3. Pre-clinical and clinical medicine and nursing are classified as principal subjects on the HESA student record. Source: Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) student record.|
