London student body becoming ‘hyper-diverse’

Nearly three-quarters of young people from London going on to higher education will be from black and minority ethnic backgrounds by 2030, according to a report.

The research, carried out by pan-London network AccessHE, predicts that while the number of young Londoners from Indian and Chinese backgrounds going to university is expected to decline, some 10,000 more students from other Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) groups—including those with African or mixed heritage—are expected to enrol. It will mean that 74 per cent of students from London entering higher education will be from non-White backgrounds by 2030.

The report cites existing data showing that around half of London-docimiled students study in London, while more than 40 per cent of those who study outside the capital do so in the south-east or the east of England.
