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.
Update to 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 consists of a visual and interactive dashboard of data, supported by accompanying data tables.
This scheduled revision to data that was originally published on 29 March 2019 will include data for providers that have registered with the Office for Students between 22 June 2019 and 19 July 2019.
26 July 2019
Release of Longitudinal Education Outcomes (LEO) data onto Unistats website
Updated experimental statistics on salaries three years after graduation added to the Unistats website, or its replacement.
August/September 2019 (this release has been delayed from June 2019)
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 is the third scheduled revision to the data that was originally published on 5 February 2019. It 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 20 September 2019.
26 September 2019
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.
