Who is this video for?

  • HESES webinars are open to all providers (including further education and sixth form colleges and academies) that are registered or have applied to be registered with the OfS in the Approved (fee cap) category. These providers will be required to return the HESES22 data return in November and December 2022. 
  • These webinars and videos are for people who will be completing HESES for the first time, or those who need a back-to-basics introduction.
  • You do not need previous knowledge of the HESES return, but we recommend that you know about the types of higher education courses at your provider (for example, how and when they are delivered), as well as your provider's data collection systems.
