7 “The HEFCE new entrant control number sets a limit on the number of HEFCE fundable students starting full-time undergraduate and PGCE (excluding TDA funded students) study in a given academic session.” What is the New Entrant Control Number? The University is fined by HEFCE for every NECN student over this set limit Student Recruitment – Admissions Training Day

9 For the 2011/12 academic session, undergraduate students will contribute towards the control number if: They do not withdraw from their programme/instance of study within 2 weeks of commencing it. They are HEFCE fundable, full-time students in the academic year, 1st August 2011 to 31st July They have NOT been HEFCE fundable, full-time students in either of the two preceding academic years (that is between 1st August 2009 and 31st July 2011) at Greenwich or a partner institution. Who counts towards the control number? Student Recruitment – Admissions Training Day

10 Answers to some frequently asked questions: Students who were previously studying on a part-time basis who switch to full-time study can count towards the control number. Students who have studied full-time for a foundation year (or similar) at Greenwich or partner institution who then move onto the final year of a degree programme may NOT count towards the control number. Once a student has been fully registered for more than two weeks, they count towards the control number, regardless of what happens after this point. Who counts towards the control number?

15 Predictions from Applications School may be close to target but there is a wide variation between different Departments (and Programmes) Question Is the School aiming for the NECN targets in terms of Departmental SSR, class size, specialist facilities?  If yes, need to make decisions about offers – close popular courses as assumption that less popular courses will fill.  If no, take most qualified applicants and work to overarching school total There is a middle ground Student Recruitment – Admissions Training Day

16 Programmes above 100% and below 20% Questions to ask Above 100%  Are there limited specialist facilities?  Are there limited lecture hall sizes, any timetabling issues? –If yes, may need to think about closing the course  Are staff flexible and able to teach different subjects? –If yes, may be able to continue to recruit Below 20%  Can students be taught with students on a different programme?  Can you market more effectively? –If no, programme may not be viable.
