UEA bosses were coming under fire this afternoon after a report published by the Equality Commission revealed that 97% of the 2019 undergraduate intake were either Nerds, or originated from ‘Nerdy/Spoddy backgrounds’.
UEA Diversity Officer Autumn Fairisle told The Lentil
Despite promises made in 2018 to extend access to further education to Goths, Chavs and Emos, the campus is still predominantly Nerd-centric.
Student leaders claim that the prevalence of Nerds at the UEA no longer accurately reflects the demographic of a modern student population, which, according to the Office for National Statistics is:
|EMOS / Goths||18%|
|Nerds and Spods||11%|
