The question asks about the London Borough of Wandsworth. Figures are available for Wandsworth Local Education Authority (LEA). However, for LEAs within Greater London, it is only possible to give the number of entrants to undergraduate courses rather than the total number of people attending higher education institutions.

In 2000/01, 19,000 people resident in Wandsworth LEA attended further education (FE) sector colleges.

In 2001/02, around 1,600 people resident In Wandsworth were accepted onto full time undergraduate courses.
