The post-collection outputs will be released via the ‘2018-19 post-collection outputs’ group on the OfS portal. Access to the ‘2018-19 post-collection outputs’ area can be granted by your provider's nominated OfS portal user administrator. More information on each of the outputs is provided below.
2018-19 student number post-collection outputs
The 2018-19 student number post-collection outputs provide the full-time equivalent student numbers by level of study using the 2018-19 HESA student, HESA AP student and ILR data. These are the student numbers that the OfS will use for various regulatory purposes, including for setting registration fees and assessing applications for degree awarding powers, university title and university college title.
Funding data summaries
The student premium (SP) funding data summary shows how we calculate two targeted allocations for each provider:
- Premium to support successful student outcomes: full-time
- Disabled students’ premium.
We determine the headcounts in the summary using the following datasets:
- HESA AP student data
- ILR R14
- The National Pupil Database
- Young higher education participation rates by 2011 Middle Layer Super Output Area (MSOA) in England and Wales, by 2011 Super Output Area (SOA) in Northern Ireland and by 2001 Intermediate Zone in Scotland.
- Proportion of 16-74 year olds with a higher education qualification by 2001 census small area statistics ward.
For further information on the funding methods and datasets used to calculate the targeted allocations shown in the summary, see the method document.
The SP individualised file contains data from the datasets listed above, and fields that we have derived from them. For data protection reasons, we do not show data related to Level 3 qualifications on entry if it is sourced from the ILR R14 and National Pupil Database datasets.
Some of the derived fields from the HESES18B population output are used to calculate the SP derived fields. The individualised file containing these fields is provided as part of the funding data summaries.
The algorithms for the derived fields in the SP and HESES18B population individualised files are included in the technical documents.
Reconciliation exercise HESES18B comparison
The HESES18B comparison outputs are a summary workbook which compares HESES18B data to HESES18B data recreated using the 2018-19 HESA AP student data, an individualised file, and an instance period file.
