In total, 63.4% of respondents had not seriously considered withdrawing from their degree programme. This means that over one in three (36.6%) have seriously considered withdrawing.

The proportion of respondents who had seriously considered withdrawing is particularly high for final year undergraduate respondents, where more than two in five indicated that they have considered withdrawing from their programme (44.7%). For first year undergraduate respondents, this was 35.0%, and for taught postgraduate respondents, only 28.8% indicated that they had considered withdrawing from their programme.
