Number crunching

The new academic year has seen 22,195 students register so far this term, some 4700 of them first years and 2,355 part-time, compared with 1,699 last year. The overall figure for this stage in 1996/97 was 20,897 – the rise in numbers has been due in part to a quicker registration process.
