Table 12 - Analysis of staff costs
Academic years 2016/17 to 2020/21
As part of their latest data submission, HE providers are able to restate the previous year's figures. In this table, previous year's figures are based on restated figures (so the 2018/19 figures are taken from the 2019/20 return and the 2017/18 figures are from the 2018/19 return). Where a provider has not submitted data in a given academic year they will not be shown in either that academic year nor the prior academic year due to the unavailability of restated values.
From the 2018/19 collection onwards, some English providers were not required to complete the staff earning more than £100,000 section of this table for restated 2017/18, 2018/19 and later years. Where that is the case, no values are shown in “Staff earning more than £100,000 only”.
Type of data
HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) are the experts in UK higher education data and analysis. We have been collecting higher education information since the 1994/95 academic year.
Finance data is taken from the HESA Finances record, which universities, colleges and other higher education providers return to HESA on an annual basis. The Finance record collects a range of information about the primary financial statements from HE providers' published accounts.
From 2018/19, data for English HE providers (excluding further education colleges and sixth form colleges under the primary regulation of the Education and Skills Funding Agency) was collected by the Office for Students .
We provide data and analysis on finances of HE providers to a wide variety of customers, including:
- Universities (via the Heidi Plus analytics tool)
- Academic and commercial researchers
- Students and potential students
- Trade unions and employers' associations
- Policy makers.
Our data is used to regulate the sector, inform policy making, advance understanding of social and economic trends, support decision making, and enhance public understanding of - and confidence in - the higher education sector.
Our HE Provider Data: Finance data pages collect together all of the tables we publish on finances in higher education.
