Unistats (formerly Teaching Quality Information) is a portal with up-to-date information on the quality of higher education in the UK. It includes results from the National Student Survey, official statistics on entry qualifications, progress, degree results and careers, plus reports on teaching quality.

Unistats is the official site that allows you to search for and compare data and information on university and college courses from across the UK. The site draws together comparable information on those areas that students have identified as important in making decisions about what and where to study. The items that students thought were most useful have been included in a Key Information Set (KIS), which can be found on the Overview tab for each course.

The site draws on the following official data on higher education courses:

These data have been provided by the Higher Education Statistics Agency, HESA, the Skills Funding Agency, universities and colleges and Ipsos MORI (National Student Survey)

HEFCE (the Higher Education Funding Council for England) owns the Unistats websites and has contracted UCAS to manage the delivery and maintenance of these websites on its behalf.
