Does UCAS tell the unis I apply to what sexual orientation I selected?

I don't know what to put. I fear discrimination.

If I apply to Nottingham and I put gay onto UCAS, does Nottingham see that I'm gay when I apply?

I'm also planning on applying to Durham.

No - the Unis dont recieve this information, its just for UCAS stats.

(And btw, Unis wouldnt care anyway.)

Is there even a question for this? I submitted my applications two weeks ago but I didn't think this was there?

Universities woudnt be able to discriminate on this basis anyway. It goes against the law. The only use it might be would be to prove they are a diverse organisation. Employers often ask for this but it is purely for stats purposes.
