Baccalauréat holders from the class of 2008 who went on to higher education: where are they four years later?
SIES A2.1
Of those students who passed their baccalauréat in 2008 and who went on to study in metropolitan France, 68% were still in higher education four years later, and 30% of these already had a higher education diploma. 32% were no longer in higher education and 14% had left without a diploma. In all, almost half of the class of 2008 who went on to higher education already had a diploma at the end of three years. 35% of those who enrolled in the first year of a Bachelor's degree course in 2008 obtained their degree after three years and 28% were in a Master's programme. In the short courses, 7 out of 10 students in University technology institutes (¦Institut universitaire de technologie - ¦IUT) obtained their diploma after two years, and the same for 6 out of 10 students in the Advanced technician’s sections (¦Section de technicien supérieur - ¦STS). In their fourth year, more than 7 out of 10 students from classes preparing for admission to Grandes Écoles (¦Classe préparatoire aux grandes écoles - ¦CPGE) were enrolled in a further education school doing a course at baccalauréat + 5 years study level, with students from the arts and humanities classes preferring universities. The proportion of students going on to post-baccalauréat schools and paramedical courses increased significantly over the last ten years.
