The amount of non-binary students is growing


Research from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) shows that 1,025 students in British higher education identify as neither male nor female, which is more than twice as it used to be last year. The researchers connect this fact directly with non-binary representation n media and a wide range of celebrities that have come out as non binary or just expressed their gender fluidity. The HESA data also shows that, when compared to figures from three years before the latest update, university students are around four-and-a-half times more likely to define as ‘Other’, rejecting the traditional male-female binarity. London and Glasgow-based universities had the most self-defining non-binary students, with King’s College London topping the table ahead of the University of Glasgow, Kingston University and the University of Strathclyde.
