Equality and diversity statistics -
monitoring the higher education (HE) sector
Each year HEFCW collects and produces statistical data about the HE sector’s performance regarding equality and diversity.
The data used in monitoring has been taken from Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) records. Data is submitted by all UK HE institutions to HESA after the end of the academic year and are supplied to HEFCW by HESA. These reports and their accompanying analysis are based on returns made by Welsh higher education institutions.
