Notes on this data

This data is drawn from the annual HESES return (Higher Education Students Early Statistics survey).

HESES provides a snapshot of HE students 'live' on 1 December, plus forecasts of enrolling students between 2 December and 31 July. HEFCE use the data as an early indicator of the number of students studying in that academic year and as the basis for University funding.

HESES data is compiled and submitted by Academic Registry. National statistics can be found on the HESA website.

Neither set of statistics includes registered only students. For information on these students please contact the Collaborative Programmes Office in Academic Registry.
