Thank you for being interested in our staff and student profiles by equality analyses. In this section you will find many data sets on our staff and students. To read more information on Equality and Diversity at Coventry University, go to the Equality and Diversity homepage, or read our supporting documents, including policies.

We are particularly pleased by the increase in staff who have informed the Institution that they have a disability or long-term health condition. We also welcome the increase again in students from Black and Minority Ethnic backgrounds choosing to study at Coventry.

Where available, comparisons are given with the whole higher education sector and modern universities (also known as post-92s or new universities).  This term specifically relates to any former polytechnics, central institutions or colleges of higher education that were given university status by by the government in 1992 as well as colleges that have been granted university status since then.
