Highest black student intake for ten years

Thirty-two black students were accepted for undergraduate study at Oxford this year, the highest number in ten years.

The acceptance rate of black students also increased to 14%, an improvement on both 2009 and 2010 figures (12.2% and 8.8% respectively). Black students accounted for 1.3% of all offers made in 2011, the same percentage as those students achieving AAA at A level who are of black ethnicity. A spokesperson for Oxford University promised that Oxford would “continue to do more to improve these numbers.”
