Black College Students in Britain are Segregated Into Second- and Third-Tier Institutions

Data from Britain’s Higher Education Statistics Agency shows that blacks are having a difficult time securing places at elite universities in the United Kingdom. The data shows that at nine of the 19 elite private universities there are fewer than 30 blacks of Caribbean descent. The study found that there are more black students enrolled at London Metropolitan University than at all 19 of the elite group of universities combined.
