Three in four students from London will be from ethnic minorities in ‘hyper-diversity’ era

Almost three-quarters of London based students who enter university will be from ethnic minorities by end of the next decade, according to new research.

Analysis from Access HE, an organisation that aims to support the progression of under-represented groups to higher education, predicts an era of “hyper-diversity” where more than half (54 per cent) of students from the capital will be the first in their family to go to university.

More than a quarter (27 per cent) of students from London will be white by 2030 – a drop from 37 per cent at present, the research predicts.

They imagine this to be a good thing.
