According to provisional data, nearly 2,000 fewer students than in the previous year are enrolled in vocational colleges in the academic year 2014/15, i.e. 11,485 students. In the last few years the share of full-time students has been increasing. While ten years ago one in three higher vocational students was a full-time student, the share of full-time students in the academic year 2014/15 increased to 60%.

72,214 students are enrolled in higher undergraduate and postgraduate studies at universities and single higher education institutions in the academic year 2014/15. The number of higher education students continues to decrease. Compared to the academic year 2009/10 it decreased by 26,000.  

The number of students decreased in all types of higher education, except the number of master students (2nd Bologna cycle), which continues to increase; there are nearly 22,000 master students in the current academic year, one fifth at uniform master studies and the rest continuing their education after already gaining an undergraduate diploma. 

14,750 students are new entrants to tertiary education, enrolled in the first grade of the higher undergraduate[1] studies for the first time. 86% of new entrants are full-time students. The number of new entrants has decreased noticeably in the previous five years. In the academic year 2009/10 there were more than 22,000 new entrants in tertiary education studies.

Only 500 students are enrolled in the previous non-Bologna study programs. These are mostly candidates for graduation in previous higher academic study programs or students in the last year of medical studies.

 [1] Data include students in higher professional and academic study programmes as well as students in uniform master study programmes as they are comparable withby previous education attained (enrolled into tertiary education for the first time).
