  1. The graduate group does not include postgraduates.
  2. Disability status – Disabled/ Not Disabled. This breakdown is based on the legal definition found in the Equality Act (2010) which defines a disability as “a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities”.
  3. Some figures have been calculated using small sample sizes and therefore should be interpreted with caution due to uncertainty. Please check corresponding CSV data downloads for information on which groups are affected.
