Gender pay gap for Universities.

Gender pay gap for Universities.

York St John and Shropshire's Harper Adams have reported the worst gender pay gap of universities in England.

Women working at the two universities are paid 37.7% less than men, according to median average salaries.

Of the prestigious Russell Group universities, Durham fared worst with a 29.3% gap.

Across all universities in England, the average gender pay gap is 18.4% - meaning for every £1 men earn per hour, women earn 81.6p.

The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London was the only institution to pay women more than men - an average gap of 1.9%.


Agricultural university Harper Adams said its results were due to "historical issues of gender balance in certain employment sectors".

However, fellow rural specialist the Royal Agriculture University in Cirencester was one of only three universities to report a 0% pay gap.
