Staff and Student data reports:

Now in its 14th year, A-HE’s annual Equality in Higher Education: Statistical Reports aim to assist the sector in better understanding the main equality challenges for higher education institutions.

By presenting a snapshot of the age, disability, ethnicity and gender of higher education staff and students, as well as the interplay between these identities, this report can help direct future efforts to overcome these challenges and address the inequalities in the UK higher education sector and can be useful benchmarking resources.


All publications, reports and resources are gathered together in the Advance HE resource hub.
