Gender divide in subjects persists

Gender divide

The number of women studying engineering at HE is almost equal to the numbers of men studying subjects like nursing. And the gender split continues across a range of subjects, tailing off when it comes to subjects like medicine and dentistry or business and administration. Computer science is another subject with an extremely male profile while education and, perhaps more surprisingly, veterinary medicine are studied predominantly by women.

The statistics relate to a HESA report published in the Times Higher Education supplement.
