Black applicants 'face more university fraud claims'
Black students are more likely to have their university applications flagged for potential fraud or errors than any other ethnic group, according to data from the Ucas admissions service.
Of the 5,160 forms flagged between 2013 and 2017, 52% were from black students.
Ucas said was unclear why this is the case and it would work with organisations representing ethnic minority groups to examine the issue.
White students - 73% of all applicants - had 19% of flagged applications.
About 16% of flagged applications were from Asian students, who made up 11% of applicants, Ucas said.
