What we ask and guidance on how to answer

Below we've detailed the diversity monitoring information the University currently requests from staff and students and some guidance on how to answer.

The format of University questions is informed by HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) reporting requirements but the questions you’ll see on SuccessFactors or your online student record are not all an exact copy of the HESA formats as we’ve made some amendments based on the views and needs of our community. For example, based on previous consultation we’ve changed HESA’s use of ‘impairment’ to 'disability’. You can read more about these changes using the links in the tabs below.

If you have any questions about the diversity monitoring questions we ask or how to answer them, please contact us at . If you would like to suggest additions or changes to our diversity monitoring questions, please complete the form here.


Why am I seeing "OPTION NO LONGER AVAILABLE - Please select an alternative"?

Do not worry. We have made some changes to questions, there are some instances in which a previous response option no longer exists. In that case, we ask that you please select a response from the new response options. Read more about this issue here.
