Dear Falmouth University,

Thank you for your email.

I define ethnicity as the other universities have White, Black, Asian, Chinese, Mixed, Other etc. However, I would be happy to receive data under Falmouth's definitions of ethnicity, how the university categorises its academics according to ethnicity.

I would like the data to be broken down into numbers and percentages.

Yours faithfully,

Teuta Hoxha
