Higher education providers

We use the umbrella term higher education provider (HE provider) to describe the organisations we collect data from.

The term includes all publicly funded universities and other higher educations institutions (HEIs) in the UK, alternative HE providers (APs) that offer HE courses but do not receive annual public funding, and further education colleges (FECs) in Wales which provide some HE level courses.

Below we provide a list of HE providers that are included in HESA data releases for the 2017/18 academic year. Different groups of providers are included in different releases, so please check any notes on coverage.

Also in this section we have information about provider mergers and changes and the current make-up of the University of London
