This statistic displays the number of students enrolled at public universities in Spain from the academic year 2008/2009 to 2016/2017, by degree type. As the Bologna Process agreements were implemented, the number of 1º and 2º Ciclo students decreased significantly, since Grado became the new standard type of degree in Spain. The number of Grado students stood at approximately 1.1 million in the 2016/2017 academic year in Spanish public universities, which represent a much greater number than that at private universities.
