    Not at all surprised that figures have dropped so much. Fee increase must be one of the main factors and additionally other providers. Difficult times ahead for O.U students and staff.

    It’s not that 16% is a big drop, it’s that it’s very close to 1/6th of the student numbers which is worrying ie is it actually a close to 100% in new enrollments?

    Also worth noting is that Birkbeck have a 19% drop which would be greater as it’s not shielded by NI/Scotland/Wales funding as the OU is.

    Pity that neither have the figures for new enrollments.
