2022 marks the start of the college HE project. The vision for this project is to ingest higher education (HE) in further education (FE) data from across the UK into HESA records with the aim of having all UK HE data in one place.

We use the term ‘college HE’ to refer to student enrolments on HE courses in FE settings. At the present time, each devolved administration in the UK collects its own college HE dataset using different data definitions and standards. Having multiple administrative datasets, which are quite different from each other, makes it difficult for users to assemble and produce information about the whole UK HE student population. The Office for Statistics Regulation has identified this as a gap in consistent and integrated data so at HESA we have made it our objective to make this data available.
