Ulster University

Mr. John D. Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many new students were enrolled in Ulster university in the present academic year; how many of these students came from the Republic of Ireland; if the enrolment of new students was within the agreed numerical limit; and what assessment he has made of the consequences of this year's enrolment rates for enrolment of new students in the next academic year. [28048]

Mr. Ancram: The number of new full-time under-graduate students enrolled at the university of Ulster in the present academic year was 4,801 of whom 854 were domiciled in the Republic of Ireland.

The limit--maximum aggregate student number MASN--which the university is required to observe is on its total enrolment of award-holding students. There is no specific control on the enrolment of new students. In 1995-96, the MASN was exceeded by 558 students. For the university to remain within its MASN in the next academic year, it will have to make an adjustment to its intakes commensurate with last year's excess.

Carryduff Primary School

Mr. John D. Taylor: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what was the enrolment in each of the past five years at Carryduff primary school; what is the expected enrolment at the school in each of the next five years; what proposals there are to provide additional accommodation and teaching staff at the school; how many places in primary one will be available in the next academic year; how many applicants there are for places in primary one at the school for the next academic year; and if he will make a statement. [28080]

Mr. Ancram: The enrolment in each of the past five years are in the table.

YearNumber of pupils enrolled
1991-92293 (at January 1991)
1992-93280 (at October 1992)
1993-94279 (at October 1993)
1994-95281 (at October 1994)
1995-96293 (at October 1995)

It is not possible to project accurately an enrolment figure for each of the next five years. The Department has approved an enrolment number of 333 for the 1996-97 school year.

13 May 1996 : Column: 347

Accommodation issues at the school are a matter for the South-Eastern education and library board and there are no proposals to provide additional accommodation. The provision of additional teaching staff is a matter for the board of governors of the school.

My Department has approved a temporary variation to the school's admissions number to 55 for the 1996-97 school year. The school has received 55 applications.
