A brief description of how the figure above was determined:

The University of Tasmania has recently redesigned its program structure to make it a better experience for students, resulting in a massive change to offered degrees (number and content). As a consequence, identification of programs that require an understanding of the concept of sustainability based on successful completion of a sustainable-focused program has proven difficult. Consequently, we have used the number of students graduating from a program in 2021 that completed a sustainability-focused course. This is likely to be an underestimate as many students would have acquired an understanding of sustainability in their programs by completing a number of courses that individually are not sustainability-focused, but together deliver a broad understanding of sustainability.
