​HESA Student Return


The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) is the official agency for the collection, analysis and dissemination of quantitative information about higher education in the United Kingdom. Every higher education institution has a statutory obligation to submit data to HESA.


Data collected by HESA includes:

  • student entry profiles and personal characteristics
  • module and course level data
  • funding information
  • qualifications awarded

This data is used to inform funding allocations to higher education institutions, performance indicators, publications (including UNISTATS) and our position in league tables.


The HESA Student Return provides the target population for the National Student Survey (NSS) and the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) Return.


Providers are required to send one complete data file by 15 September 2016 and the final submission data for the 2015-2016 student record is 31 October 2016
