About Discover Uni
Discover Uni is the official, authoritative source of information and guidance on higher education in the UK.
It is designed to support prospective students in deciding whether, where and what to study. The site replaced Unistats from September 2019.
Discover Uni provides supportive information and guidance about the different options for studying. It helps prospective students make sense of all the information out there by linking to other quality resources and explaining what they can find where. It also allows users to search for and compare information and data for individual undergraduate courses across the UK.
Discover Uni is jointly owned by the Office for Students, the Department for the Economy Northern Ireland, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales and the Scottish Funding Council.

The Graduate Outcomes and LEO data published on Discover Uni are classed as experimental statistics. This is because the survey and statistics they provide are new.
We welcome feedback on how useful the statistics are and what can be done to improve them. You can find out more about how the statistics are produced and provide feedback on our Official Statistics pages.
The data on Discover Uni is called the Unistats dataset. Unistats data is collected by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), and is available for reuse either through an Application Programming Interface (API) or as a downloadable dataset.
Find out more about the Unistats dataset on the HESA website.
