Experts in UK higher education data and analysis
We'll be using our site to explain, discuss and invite challenge on our emerging approach to data collection and onward use. This will include draft schedules and specifications, open questions, review points and frequently asked questions.
We believe that our new site represents a significant step forward in making our services easier to access and use, making data and analysis on the UK higher education sector easier to find, and improving understanding of how HESA benefits all organisations with an interest in UK higher education
We know that many of you are working on open collections and we have attempted to minimise disruption as much as possible. We have aimed to migrate existing content and functionality, while creating a more accessible and responsive site with a robust navigation structure to make content easier to find.
