Christian teens less likely to go to uni

Christian teens among those least likely to attend university.

A study has found that Hindu, Sikh and Muslim teenagers are more likely to go to university than their Christian or atheist peers. The figures, produced by the UK National Statistics for the Department of Education, were based on a study of more than 13,000 young people. Of those who describe themselves as Hindu at age 15, 77 per cent went on to higher education, compared to 45 per cent of Christians.

The figure was 63 per cent for Sikh teenagers and 53 per cent for Muslims. Just 32 per cent of those who had no religion at 15 undertook higher education.
