Programmes with insufficient available space

To calculate the number of available spaces on a programme, the Programme reserved size and the number of real students that are enrolled on the programme are subtracted from the Programme total size.

If the total size was estimated at the beginning of the planning process and more students than expected have enrolled on the programme, the bar and the number beside With <= [0-100]% available spaces (in the Programmes area of the dashboard) will indicate that the programme has insufficient available space.

In the percentage box, enter a number. For example, if you enter 5, the dashboard indicates how many programmes have a number of available spaces that is 5% or less of the programme's total size.

The proportion of available space that is acceptable will vary depending on the stage of the planning cycle:

  • If many students have not yet registered at the institution and the number of available spaces is already low, you might increase the programme's total size so that the programme can accommodate more students.
  • If most students have registered, you would expect the number of available spaces on the programme to be low.

To resolve the problem, click Show beside the indicator. The Programme Editor window lists the programmes that have insufficient available space. In the Programme Editor window, click Planning Formulae to increase the size of the programme or make reserved spaces available.
