Statistics release schedule
We apply the principles and practices set out in the Code of Practice for Statistics to the statistics we produce. Among other commitments, this means we publish release dates for forthcoming official statistics.
Access and participation dataset
Data indicators that provide a sector-level picture of the patterns in access and participation across the student lifecycle, and also at individual provider-level. Published for all English providers delivering undergraduate provision, the dataset will consist of a visual and interactive dashboard of data, supported by additional and more granular data tables.

Update to HESES and HEIFES survey data relating to academic year 2018-19
The Higher Education Students Early Statistics (HESES) and Higher Education in Further Education Student (HEIFES) surveys give an early indication of the number of higher education students studying in each academic year. They are used primarily to inform the allocation of teaching funding for the following academic year.
This scheduled revision to the data that was originally published on 5 February 2019 will include data for providers that have both registered with the Office for Students in the Approved (fee cap) category and signed off their HESES18 or HEIFES18 data by 23 April 2019.
25 April 2019
Release of equality and diversity data about students including 2017-18 students
Data for entrants, enrolled students and qualifying students, by equality and diversity characteristics
Release of 2019 Unistats dataset
(the name of this release may be subject to change)
Official data for undergraduate courses on each university and college’s National Student Survey scores, jobs and salaries after study and other key information for prospective students.
Note on release dates
We aim to provide specific release dates at least four weeks in advance where practicable, and release month(s) for publications in the next 12 months. As a new organisation, this schedule may be more likely to change as we review and update our work.
All official statistics will be released at 0930 on a weekday.
The OfS applies the Pre-release Access to Official Statistics Order 2008. The organisation and job title of individuals granted pre-release access will be published on these pages. Pre-release access is limited to 24 hours before the official statistics are published.
