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 HE institutions in the UK, as well as the privately funded University of Buckingham. It also includes a growing body of alternative HE providers. These are organisations that offer HE courses but do not receive annual public funding (and are not further education colleges).

Below we provide a list of all current HE institutions (this list does not include alternative providers). Elsewhere, we have information about provider mergers and changes and the current make-up of the University of London
