Performance Indicators in Higher Education

Since 1998 the UK funding bodies have worked together to provide indicators of the performance of higher education institutions in the 4 home countries. These are now gathered by HESA. Indicators include: participation of under-represented groups in higher education; non-continuation following year of entry; projected learning outcomes and efficiencies; employment indicators; mature entrants to full-time first degree courses by subject and entry qualifications; percentage from state school by subject and entry qualifications; percentage from low participation neighbourhood by subject and entry qualifications. Time-series aggregate statistics; some time-series begin 2000/2001, while most begin 2008/2009. Earlier statistics are available from the Higher Education Funding Council for England.
