News and insight
This summer sees a wealth of valuable data released on the destinations of graduates. This data provides real evidence about the employability and progression of students at a time of increasing uncertainty. This blog provides an overview of what data is being released and how you can get the most from it.
Our estates publication includes environmental information for UK higher education providers. The free tables include information on providers' grounds and buildings, water and energy usage, waste management, transport and other environmental measurements.
We have developed a new subject coding system to replace JACS. HECoS (the Higher Education Classification of Subjects) is more flexible than JACS, and so is better able to capture the diverse and dynamic nature of modern HE provision.
Finances of Higher Education Providers 2015/16 publication released.
HESA's publication summarising the finances of HE providers reveals the breakdown of the sector's £33.0 billion expenditure in 2015/16. Academic departments accounted for £12.3 billion of spending - 37% of total expenditure. Medicine, dentistry and health departments accounted for nearly a quarter of this, with £2.9 billion spend on these departments.
Guest blogger Dr Garrick Fincham offers a planner's perspective on the challenges facing providers in the Data Futures programme.
The final round of consultation as part of our NewDLHE review of graduate outcomes data has now closed, and we have been given a broad mandate to proceed to implement our model.
Results of the HE Business and Community Interaction (HEBCI) Survey for 2015/16, published online free of charge, show that 3,890 graduates start-ups were formed in 2015/16, and that active HE provider spin-offs and start-ups employed over 44,000 people. HE providers earned £1.7 billion from intellectual property, consultancy contracts, CPD courses, regeneration and development programmes, and facilities and equipment related services.
This UK Performance Indicator Experimental Statistics release covers widening participation and non-continuation rates at publicly funded HE providers and alternative providers.
This UK Performance Indicators release focuses on non-continuation rates for UK domiciled students.
We are consulting on our new model for collecting information about what higher education (HE) students do after graduating (deadline for responses: 7 April).
