10 September 20167 October 201613 September 2016I would like statistics about students with Aspergers syndrome, compared to the rest of the student population at Stafford University, most particularly statistics relating to the Faculty of Arts and Creative Technology which covers coursesN.B. That students are not obliged to give the university details of any disability they may have so the university can only supply data it currently holds.

In 2015-16 there were 51 students on campus (Stafford and Stoke sites) with a diagnosis of Social/Communication Impairment (Autism/Aspergers). This is approximately 1.28% of student body for ACT and 7.64% of students who disclose a disability within the faculty.

� 30 are proceeding onto the next level of their award (58.82%)
� 1 retaking level with attendance (1.96%)
� 7 withdrawn (13.7%)

Of the students who graduated
� 6 students achieved 2:1 class (50%)
� 4 students achieved 2:2 class (33.33%)
� 2 students achieved 3rd class (16.7%)

Overall 39 students with a disability withdrew from their award (0.98%) of which students with Autism/Aspergers accounted for 0.19%. This compares with 218 students who withdrew who did not disclose a disability (6.05%)
