FOI and fact check- Gypsies, Roma and Travellers

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear University of Cambridge,

I am a BBC News journalist working on a story about the experience of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers (GRT) in Higher Education in the UK. The questions I want to fact check have a deadline of this Friday 27 midday. I have sent this to the all of the top 10 universities.

I would like to ask simply:

a) Do you measure how many students who identify as Gypsies, Roma or Travellers attend your university each year?
b) Do you recognise GRT as a group which needs specific outreach programmes?

The FOI, which has a normal deadline of 20 days:
c) Do you have the numbers of students who identify as GRT who attended your university in the last three academic years and their attainment?

Yours faithfully,

Poppy Damon
