It shows that males earn more than females both for those with no known disability and those who are disabled. Males who graduated in 2010/11 with no known disability were earning £29,300 in 2016/17 compared to £26,200 for females with no known disability. Disabled males who graduated in 2010/11 were earning £26,600 in 2016/17 compared to £24,000 for disabled females.
The recorded type of disability that a student has is on the basis of the student's own self-assessment. See ‘Methodology’ section for more information.
