A former U.S. President Bill Clinton is getting less college degrees than he used to.
According to the latest data from the U.K. Higher Education Statistics Agency, which tracks the number of people with bachelor’s degrees, Clinton earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oxford in the past year, down from a record-breaking 2,500 in 2011.
The data also shows that Clinton’s current rate of college-going is lower than the national average of 20.3 percent.
Clinton, who left office in January, earned an associate’s degree in political science from Cambridge University, up from 9.7 percent in 2011, according to the report.
“He is not achieving the kind of progress that many of his predecessors have achieved,” said Andrew Purdy, chief executive of Higher Education Services, which runs the data.
That said, Clinton’s average degree in the United Kingdom is higher than the U of A average of 11.5 percent.
In 2020, Clinton graduated from Oxford with a bachelor of arts degree, a drop from 12.3 in 2010.
In the U, the average American with a college degree earned a degree in 2020 at the same time the national median was 8.9, the UPI reported.
College completion rates for men, women and undergrads vary, according a Pew Research Center report released last month.
Among men, the rate was 61.4 percent in 2020, while the national rate was 55.4.
And among women, the overall completion rate was 62.6 percent in the U., compared to the national record of 64.1 percent in 2012, according the report, which examined data from U.C.L.A. and other public universities.
Purdy said that it was too soon to tell if the drop in bachelor’s-degree holders is a result of the U and Brexit, but the trends are likely related.
Still, there is some evidence that people are getting more educated.
According the report of the University and College Union, college enrollment in the 2016-17 academic year, which began on July 1, rose for the first time in a decade.
