Students working in the "Hive" social learning space

Equality and diversity data

We are very keen to work with as much useful equality and diversity data as we can access.

How we use the data

The University uses equality and diversity data to:

  • Monitor and evaluate impact of the Single Equality Scheme (SES)
  • Inform and guide equality assessment
  • Shape recruitment practice of staff and students
  • Inform any intervention designed to address inequality with regard to performance or experience

Staff and student data reports

Given the responsibility for equality data crossing many public bodies, it is very challenging to establish an agreed way of using it. However, at UWE Bristol, we have established a consistency of methods, concepts and classifications in the collection and presentation of equality statistics. This is evidenced in the annual staff and student data reports:

Other information sources

It is important to understand this data within its sectorial and regional context, so also plan to produce these contextual reports from 2014. Our main sources of information will be:

  • Census (for England and Wales)
  • HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency)
  • ONS (Office for National Statistics)
  • Unistats (official website for comparing UK higher education course data)
  • NSS (National Student Survey)
