Record ethnic minority students at Oxford

Oxford University’s latest admissions figures show the highest ever proportion of places for ethnic minority students – at 18%.

There were also rising numbers of state school pupils, up to about 61%.

But the figures, for undergraduate entry in autumn 2018, showed more places taken by students from Singapore than from the north-east of England.

Vice-chancellor Louise Richardson said a “sea change” in admissions would “accelerate the pace of change”.

The university’s push for a more diverse intake followed accusations that it was socially exclusive.

This detailed breakdown on admissions also highlights different trends below the headline figures – such as Asian students being much more likely to get places than other minorities.
