Upcoming data releases

We publish a range of data releases each year, covering all aspects of higher education.

This page lists planned releases for the next six months. We will confirm the exact date of release at least 4 weeks before publication. If it is necessary to change a publication date, we will update this webpage accordingly. For published statistics please see Open data and official statistics and News and insight. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].

COVID-19 and the production of statistics

Due to the coronavirus illness (COVID-19) we anticipate that there might be some changes in terms of our regular statistical production. The current disruption to the UK could affect the publishing schedule for some of our statistics. In some cases, the production of some data series may need to be suspended or delayed.

Decisions will be made on a case by case basis, taking into account what information is currently relevant given the situation, with the three pillars of the Code of Practice for Statistics (Trustworthiness, Quality and Value) guiding our decisions. Giving everyone access to statistics at the same time remains a fundamental principle of the Code, but where this cannot be maintained we will be open and transparent about this and any other potential effects on our statistics. These decisions will be underpinned by the Office for Statistics Regulation’s guidance on Changes to statistical outputs during the coronavirus outbreak.

We remain committed to providing the best and most accurate information we can and we will keep you informed as developments unfold.
