Higher Education Students Early Statistics survey 2020-21 (HESES20): Guidance for providers

This document provides guidance on funding rules and definitions for the data return survey, HESES20.

It is relevant to higher education providers that:

  • have registered (or applied to register) with the Office for Students (OfS) in the Approved (fee cap) category
  • are seeking OfS funding for the 2021-22 academic year.

The data collected in HESES20 provides an early indication of the number of higher education students studying in 2020-21, and, with data supplied to the Higher Education Statistics Agency and the Education and Skills Funding Agency, will inform the allocation of teaching funds for 2021-22.

The HESES survey workbooks will be released in mid October 2020.

Action: providers should upload returns to the OfS portal.
