Tools and downloads

We have developed a number of tools to support the data collection process.

We make these available here, along with some additional downloads to support providers.

  • XML amalgamator tool (Amal tool): used to amalgamate multiple xml files.
  • Validation kits: used to test your data locally before submitting to us.
  • HUSID look-up: used to find the HUSID of a student who has previously studied at a UK higher education provider.
  • Unistats dataset: the raw dataset which underlies the Unistats website. This includes information from the Key Information Set (KIS).
  • XML data entry tool: used to produce XML data in the correct format. This tool is available for some of our streams; where it is available, it can be downloaded from the relevant coding manual.
