  14. Table 1: 2010/11 to 2011/12 APPROVED PROJECTS continued * The DHET did not approve the Fort Hare proposal for the construction of a Student Village on the Alice campus though a public/private partnership in 2010. This allocation was transferred to the 2012/13 to 2014/15 period. The DHET then committed with a contribution to ensure that the project will be implemented to build 2000 beds.

  18. Throughput rates - 2013

  19. Throughput and retention – Honours student cohort of 2009 * Retention calculations take into account students graduating. Thus 10.3% of the original intake had dropped out by 2014, 89.4% had graduated and 0% were still in the system.

  20. Throughput and retention :Honours student cohort of 2010 * Retention calculations take into account students graduating. Thus 14.7% of the original intake had dropped out by 2014, 84.9% had graduated and 0.4% were still in the system.

  21. Throughput and retention: Masters student cohort of 2009 * Retention calculations take into account students graduating. Thus 34% of the original intake had dropped out by 2014, 60% had graduated and 6% were still in the system.

  28. Accredited Research outputs 2009 – 2013 * Un-audited MASTERS AND DOCTORAL OUTPUT: 2009 – 2013 *Includes course work as well *** Only May Graduation data

  29. The graph shows HE teaching loads (Student FTEs per Teaching/Research staff FTE) against publication output the sector as a whole in 2009.  The dark blue diamonds are traditional universities, the green diamonds are comprehensive universities and the red diamonds are universities of technology. • Superimposed on this is Fort Hare’s “journey” from 2004 to 2012 (yellow diamonds with black borders).  The oldest are the smallest diamonds and they grow in size and emphasis towards 2012.  • What this figure demonstrates is that there is a relationship between publication output and teaching loads – the lighter the teaching load the higher the publication output tends to be (and vice-versa).  In Fort Hare’s case, we have steadily moved away from this general relationship.
