Part-time 1,08,702 1,25,855 1,72,640 1,63,340

Sample Answer:

The tables compare the proportion of males and females enrolled in full-time and part-time postgraduate courses at UK universities in four academic sessions between 1996 and 2010.

It is evident that student enrolments in full-time courses followed an upward trend for both the genders throughout the given period. The number of males rose from 75,370 in 1996-97 to 151,275 in 2009-10 while that of females increased from 62,344 to nearly 146,980 during this period. These figures also indicate that there was a gender disparity in full-time postgraduate programmes. In 1996/96, the gender disparity was the highest (75,370 males versus 62,344 females) but the distribution became more balanced in the following years.

Focusing on part-time courses, overall more students were registered in these programmes as compared to full-time ones. In 1996-97, about 114,000 males and about 109,000 females selected part-time courses. In the next two academic years, there was a rapid increase in the percentage of female students whereas the number of male entrants fluctuated. The year 2005-06 had the highest enrolment rate in part-time programmes for both sexes, 138,505 males and 172,640 females. Notably, the number of students dropped in 2009-10.

In general, it can be concluded that full-time courses were more popular among males than females during the given period. The trend for part-time courses, on the other hand, was the opposite.
