The data set covers:

  • principal investigator (PI) and co-investigator grant applicants and recipients
  • fellowship applicants and awardees
  • PhD studentship starts.

There are four protected characteristics in the data set:

  • age
  • disability
  • ethnicity
  • sex.

We publish this data once a year.

The diversity profiles for the student and staff populations are constructed using data from the Higher Education Statistical Agency.
