On the following pages you will find information about the diversity make-up of our student and staff body.
Each year, we set key themes to help achieve the strategic equality objectives. These inform a plan of work which is monitored by the University. To find out how the University works towards delivering the equality objectives, please read the Annual Equality and Diversity Report 2016 (PDF 169.1 kB).
National higher education data is available from the Equality Challenge Unit and the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
