​Higher Education Information Database for Institutions


The Higher Education Information database for Institutions (HEIDI) is a web-based management information service. It contains a wide range of quantitative data about higher education including student, staff and finance data collected by Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). HEIDI users can generate own reports from the database.


HEIDI is run by the HESA. Planning and Business Intelligence Team act as a local administrator of the University managing access to HEIDI. If you would like to be set up as a HEIDI user or need some help with producing your own reports, please contact at planning@napier.ac.uk.


HEIDI is an ideal way to generate benchmarking data and the range of data is increasing all the time.  A specification of the datasets available can be seen here.


In 2015/16, HEIDI will be changing to provide an even richer set of data and intelligence.  More information can be found here.
