HESA Notices

HESA Student and Staff Data Collection Notices

It is a legal requirement that some information held by the University about our students and staff will be sent to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) annually. A record is added to a database which is passed to central government departments and agencies and devolved administrations which require it to enable them to carry out their statutory functions under the Education Acts. It is also used for statistical analysis by HESA and the above bodies, resulting in publication and release of data to other approved non-statutory users. These may include academic researchers and unions.
