Equal Access Data

Since 2007, all publicly funded higher education institutions gathered additional information, as part of student registration, on the socio-economic, ethnic/cultural and disability background of new entrants to the sector. Collecting this information is an important activity for both the HEA and institutions. It advises essential research and statistical analysis underpinning the provision and funding of services and support for students, both at a local and a national level. It also supports the HEA and institutions in fulfilling their core equality functions as set out in legislation.
