The stats below refer to the subject of study at university rather than to the specific course or mode of study. For example, "German and Scandinavian Studies" refers to all students who have studied either German or a Scandinavian subject, either singly or in any combination with any other subject. Where there is not enough data to be meaningful for a subject, the statistics are collated with similar subjects. In the case of Scandinavian Studies, this would be Modern European Languages, and if there wasn't enough data for Modern European Languages, then this would be collated across All Languages.
