Disability Statistics - Education

Statistics on disabled students in higher education are available from two main sources:

Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS)

We have provided a table of the number of UK domiciled applicants through UCAS in the cycle 2000/01 in the Admissions module.

Higher Education Statistics Agency

Statistics tables on disability can be found at the HESA website (http://www.hesa.ac.uk/ [External link: Open in new browser window] ). We have collated the figures on first year UK students for 1993 - 2000 in the appendix.
