Student numbers (2017/18)
In 2017/18, student data was expected from EThames Graduate School Limited, Grafton College and London College of Creative Media Limited. However students at these providers are not included in the 2017/18 AP student record.
Student Qualifier numbers (2020/21)
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2019/20 many providers issued public statements that a 'no detriment' approach would be adopted when it came to assessment. This typically ensured that students would be awarded a final grade no lower than the most recent provider assessment of their attainment. Additionally, a few providers who experienced administrative hold ups related to the COVID-19 pandemic which began in the 2019/20 academic year. As such, qualifications that were not reported in the 2019/20 academic year were carried over to 2020/21, resulting in a decrease of student qualifiers in 2019/20 relative to the previous academic year, followed by an increase in 2020/21.
Subject of study (2007/08, 2008/09)
The Institute of Continuing Education at The University of Cambridge records enrolments by module, but its student record system is currently unable to capture separately the overall JACS programme of study for the unique course entity requirement. Consequently, for 2008/09, all 3,815 part-time other undergraduate students have been recorded as combined subject of study.
Subtotal IP income, Table 4d (2021/22)
In 2021/22, The University of Sussex saw an increase in Subtotal IP income (£000s) from 21 in 2020/21 to 1,711 in 2021/22 due to income from the sale of University shares in ReViral as a consequence of the purchase of ReViral by Pfizer.
Sum of Non-residential GIA (D11(C13)) in DEC or EPC category E (2011/12)
The University of Keele misreported D78e.C13: Sum of non-residential GIA (D11(C13)) in DEC or EPC category E Total non-residential in their 2011/12 Estate Management Statistics return. The figure has been suppressed from the main table. The corrected figure is as follows:
D78e.C13: Sum of Non-Residential GIA (D11(C13)) in DEC or EPC category E Total Non-Residential (m2) = 13412 m2.
D38c.C01b: Energy emissions Total HEI – Gas .
Table 6 - Tuition fees and education contracts (2015/16)
In 2016/17, Manchester Metropolitan University incorrectly reported some figures within the Finance record Table 6, sections 1 and 2. The correct figures are as follows:
- 1 HE Course fees
- 1a Home domiciled students
- 1ai Full-time undergraduate - Source of fees Other = £5,292K
- 2 Non-credit bearing course fees - Total £2,543K
- 1a Home domiciled students
- 1 HE Course fees
Taught masters - Aggregate Offshore - 2014/15
In 2014/15 the University of London returned approximately 2,680 taught masters students in the Aggregate Offshore Record in error. These students were studying with The School of Oriental and African Studies who also returned data about these students.
Tax credits for research and development expenditure (2014/15)
'Total income' and 'Research grants and contracts income' figures for 2014/15 include an item of exceptional income reported in respect of the Research and Development Expenditure Credit (RDEC) scheme. This amounts to £0.5 billion of exceptional income across the UK sector.
Teach out - alternative providers (2015/16)
EThames Graduate School Limited, City of London College, London School of Business and Finance and West London College were on teach out at the point the 2015/16 DLHE data was collected. This means that new students were unable to access student support, but existing students were able to continue their studies with access to funding until completing. As a result, DLHE data was not expected to be returned.
Teaching area covered by the Space Utilisation Survey (2012/13)
The Institute of Education has not returned a figure for SMTESUS - Teaching area covered by the Space Utilisation Survey within their 2012/13 Estates Management record return. They have confirmed that this is due to the provider not having undertaken a recent space utilisation survey and therefore they do not hold sufficiently detailed data on which to calculate their centrally controlled teaching space.

Teaching not offices percentage of all NIA used for time-tabled teaching (2011/12, 2012/13)
King's College London has reported that the significant decrease to data item BNIATE - Teaching not offices percentage of all NIA (net internal area) used for timetabled teaching from 45.3% in 2011/12 to 8% in 2012/13 was due to errors being made in the interpretation of the data item in 2011/12 and before. This figure was previously reported as a percentage of the NIA teaching not offices rather than all NIA used for timetabled teaching.
Term-time address (2015/16)
The University of Leicester misreported term-time address data for 2,000 (52%) first year first degree students in 2015/16. Due to a system error, the term-time postcodes for these students have been incorrectly recorded as their postcodes for summer correspondence. This also affects term-time accommodation data. The 2,000 first year first degree students should have been reported as living in a provider maintained property but instead have been reported under the property type that their summer correspondence postcode relates to, such as a parental/guardian home.
Terms of employment (2015/16)
In 2015/16, The University of South Wales undertook a contractual review of contracts for all staff members. This, together with data validation conducted alongside the introduction of a new HR/Payroll system, resulted in adjustments to contract terms and changes to the numbers of employees engaged on permanent or fixed term contracts.
Terms of employment 2022/23
In 2022/23, the Open University changed its terms of employment for one category of academic staff; Associate Lecturers now hold a single permanent contract instead of multiple fixed-term contracts. This change led to an increase in permanent contracts from 1,125 to 5,585 and a decrease in fixed-term contracts from 4,670 to 170.
