Data and HEFCE/HESA returns
Share this page
The Office for Students and in turn HESA, the Student Loan Company and UKRI, continue to place enormous emphasis on the accuracy of data and data returns.
This is a highly complex and continually evolving area. Past emphasis has been on data that drives funding, now we are also seeing a greater weighting given to data that helps potential students make informed choices. The Key Information Set is one example of this but we are also seeing added importance for data that may influence league table positions. In addition to meeting the needs of external stakeholders strong data and innovative use of that data can be an important source of competitive advantage.
We offer audits of data management systems and process, of the preparation and accuracy of individual data returns and of the use of institutional and sector data.
