ECU’s statistical reports provide equality data on staff and students within UK higher education, and students in Scottish colleges.
Each report covers data on age, disability, ethnicity and gender, as well as a combination of these groups under ‘multiple identities’.
The reports for higher education use data collected from institutions for the staff and student records by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). The data within the Scottish colleges report is provided by the Scottish Funding Council.
You can find further analysis and commentary on the trends within the most recent data in the Equality challenge section.
