This article provides information regarding Equal Opportunities Monitoring, and what it means for students.

Some of the special category data collected from you is used for equal opportunities monitoring, for example, to prepare statistics for the Board of Governors which receives an annual report on equal opportunity matters, and for external agencies, generally the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

The University is legally obliged to make these statistics publicly available, which it will do by publishing the statistics on its website.

All statistics are anonymised but, should the numbers being reported be small enough to potentially identify an individual, the figures will not be publicly reported.
