§ Mr. Maclennan
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many graduate students from South Africa are currently studying at universities and other institutions of higher education in Great Britain; and of these how many are black students.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The number of students from South Africa undertaking postgraduate studies at universities for the academic year 1971–72—the latest year for which figures are available—was 131; the number of students undertaking similar work at further education establishments—or of graduates taking another first degree, teacher training, etc—is not readily available, but is likely to be small. With reference to the second part of the Question, my Department does not collect statistics on the colour of students.
