These statistics have been prepared from the Higher Education Statistics Agency’s (HESA) student record.
Ethnicity of the student is recorded on the basis of their own self-assessment. In the case of full-time undergraduates, the information is captured as part of the admissions process through UCAS. For other student groups the information is captured directly by the higher education institution.
Student numbers are rounded to the nearest 5 students. Percentages are rounded to 1 decimal place.
Analysis published by the Office for Students investigates these differences in more depth.Quality and methodology information
