The table below provides information on the number of new entrant UK resident cadets from 2003/04 – 2018/19. Figures for 2000/01 – 2002/03 are not provided as these are not directly comparable with later statistics. The figures for the current academic year (2018/19) are incomplete as the training year is still ongoing. The Department does not currently hold data against its Tonnage Tax returns for cadets who complete their training however will actively explore gathering this information in the future.
