Do the figures reported above cover one, two, or three academic years?
We are reporting on 3 Academic years because the Sustainability and Regeneration program was first introduced in FY2017. The program is still gaining momentum and therefore we want to depict the total amount of graduates from the program rather than one Fiscal year. The program did not produce its first graduate until 2018/2019.
