This year Oxford has accepted 32 black students which means 14% of the year's intake. This is the highest number during the last 10 years. Last year only 8.8% of black applicants managed to enter undergraduate courses compared with 24.1% of white applicants.
A spokeswoman said: "The university will work hard to continue improving these numbers."
In April 2011, David Cameron showed his disapproval of Oxford's low intake of black students and described such an attitude as "disgraceful".
At a PM Direct event in North Yorkshire, David Cameron said: "I saw figures the other day that showed that only one black person went to Oxford last year. I think that is disgraceful. We have got to do better than that." According to the university's admissions figures (2009), out of 27 black students applying for undergraduate study, only one "black Caribbean" candidate was accepted. In 2010 seven out of 20 black students, seven Caribbean candidates got places at Oxford.
