Gender Gap Narrows in Scottish Higher Education

According to data released by the Scottish Funding Council, in the 2005-06 academic year, 68 percent of women in the late teen years were enrolled in higher education. That year, just 61 percent of Scottish men in the same age group were enrolled in higher education.

The latest data for the 2009-10 academic year show that 69 percent of women in their late teens were in college compared to 64 percent of men. Thus, over the past four years, the gender gap in college enrollments narrowed from 7 percentage points to five percentage points.
