In all, 5.4 per cent of students attending education leading to a qualification or degree discontinued their studies and did not resume them in any education leading to a qualification or degree during the 2013/2014 academic year. Compared to the year before, discontinuation decreased in vocational education and university education and remained unchanged in upper secondary general education and polytechnic education. These data derive from Statistics Finlands Education Statistics.
