    Rhondda Students

    According to answers I received from the Education Minister Jane Davidson recently, the number of full-time students from the Rhondda starting at higher education institutions increased by nearly 60 per cent between 1998-99 and 2003-04 from 235 to 405. Eighty-five per cent of full-time Rhondda students study at Welsh institutions. Over half currently get the full public contribution to tuition fees, and 19 per cent get partial contributions. Meanwhile 435 people from the Rhondda each year study part-time in higher education.
