Custom data and reports

We are the experts in UK higher education data and analysis.

We make a substantial amount of data available through the Data and analysis pages of our website.

If you cannot find the data you need – or if you require more detailed, complex information – we offer a custom data and reports service. There are two strands to what we offer:

  • Our custom data service provides information and analysis to your exact requirements. We can work with you during the planning and specification stages to produce a dataset or analytical report tailored to your needs.
  • Our custom reports contain mostly predetermined data fields, allowing you to customise one or two elements. We currently offer a Subject benchmarking report which enables HE providers to see how one of their subject offerings compares to their competitors.

We recognise that no single data source can provide everything that we might hope for. However, the breadth and depth of data that HESA hold, combined with their expertise and willingness to provide guidance, make HESA data an extremely useful source. Mike - The Open University
