Degree data and benchmarks

Data updated on November 15th 2019.



Data and description

2015-16 2016-17 2017-18 2018-19
New 5 5 7 9
SIIU New 5 3 6 8
Registered 10 7 11 11
Graduates 6 3 6 5

New students: these students are starting their studies from the beginning for the first time. They may have recognised credits or not.

New SIIU students: these students are starting their studies from the beginning, registering on a programme for the first time and, in accordance with SIIU criteria, may have fewer than 10 credits (for a Master's) or 30 credits (for an undergraduate programme) recognised. This set of students may also be referred to as the optimum new entry group. 

Registered students: these students have an active registration on a programme for an academic year. This set of students may also be referred to as the total student population.

  • Registration reservations are not included (due to the students awaiting a place at another university or credit recognition)
  • Registration cancellations are not included
  • Students with unpaid debts are not included

Graduates: these students have passed (passed or accredited) all credits required for the degree programme and have, therefore, finished their course regardless of whether they have requested their degree certificate be issued or not.

Entry Cohort


Data and description

2015-16 2016-17 2017-18 2018-19
Graduation Rate 60% 67% 83% 57%
Drop-out Rate 20% - 14% -

Final drop-out rate: the percentage of students from a new entry cohort that, without graduating, have not re-registered on the degree or any other programme, either at this university or at any other insitution in Spain, for two academic years in a row.

Graduation rate (RD 1393/2007) is defined as the percentage of students from an entry cohort that finish their programmes in the theoretical planned timeframe for the curriculum, or within an additional academic year. The reference population is the New Full-time SIIU Student Group.

Graduating Class


Data and description

2015-16 2016-17 2017-18 2018-19
Graduate Efficiency Rate 82% 88% 100% 93%

The efficiency rate is defined as the percentage ratio between the total number of credits passed by students throughout the registered programme from which they have graduated, and the total number of credits they effectively registered for. The reference population is the optimum group.

Credits Taken and Passed


Data and description

2015-16 2016-17 2017-18 2018-19
Degree Success Rate 97% 100% 100% 100%
Performance Rate 66% 70% 75% 75%

Success rate: the percetage ratio between the number of passed credits and the number of credits taken for assessment.

Performance rate: the percentage ratio between the number of credits passed and the number of credits registered for.
