4 Students The number of students has been steadily growing since ICEF opening in 1997 and in 2015 it reached the long-run objective (about 850 BSc students and about 80 MSc students).Further plans include growth in number of BSc graduates without increase in number of BSc students or applicants (around 220-230 per year) due to decrease in % of assignments and gradual growth of MSc students number (according to the employment of sufficient number of academics with PhD)

Average USE score (out of 100) of year 1 ICEF students, 2009-2015 * the bias observed in 2013 is caused by countrywide USE organisational errors Unified State Exam (USE) is a series of exams every student must pass after graduation from school to enter a university or a professional college. On the graph there is an average score over 3 USE subjects: Mathematics, Russian and English. The dynamics of the average USE score is positive over the last years. The intake quality of 2014 was rather high. It ensured that the progression rate of year 1 students in 2015 was more than 80%.
Distribution of ICEF applicants, admitted by results of competition or USE score
1st year progression rate dynamics The percentage of students who met the requirements of the University of London and were admitted on the International Programme. The 1st year progression rate has been growing since 2011-12. It reached quite a high level in 2015 (84%) due to a better quality of intake and ICEF team efficient work.
BSc: Academic Achievements In the majority of subjects the results of ICEF students are higher by 10-15 points than in the rest of the world. There are 2 subjects where ICEF results are below ROW results (Principles of Accounting and International Economics) and 3 subjects where ICEF results are similar to the ROW results (Further Mathematics for Economists, Monetary Economics, Quantitative Finance). Nevertheless these results are rather high (above 50 points).
Average UoL exams scores at ICEF and the Rest of the World*, 2010-2015 *The analysis accounts only for the subjects of ICEF programme Number of subjects taken by ICEF students: 2010-2013 – 21 subjects 2014 – 23 subjects (new subjects for “Mathematics and Economics” specialization) 2015 – 25 subjects (new subjects for “Mathematics and Economics” and “Accounting and Finance” specializations) In ICEF the average UoL exams scores are consistently high over the last 5 years (above 55 points) though the gap with the rest of the world average scores has slightly decreased.
Estimated ICEF BSc Graduation rates, 2010-2015 These indicators show ICEF performance of a particular year. Graduate on time: a product of progression rates of year 1, year 2, year 3 and year 4 students in a particular year. It accounts for students who will graduate after 4 years of study Graduate totally: a product of adjusted progression rates of year 1, year 2, year 3 and year 4 students in a particular year. Each progression rate is adjusted for the share of students repeating a year of study. This indicator accounts for students who will graduate after 4 and more years of study These indicators were steadily growing in 2013-15 and now they reached the highest level over the last 6 years. The graduation rate (totally) exceeded its target level (70%) although the target graduation rate (on time) should be at least 60% as indicated in the ICEF development programme.
MSc students number and progression rate 15 The MSc students number and their progression rate have been growing in the last 3 years due to the introduction of budget financed places.
