The Scottish Funding Council collects and analyses data relating to the provision of further and higher education in Scotland.
The information produced by our statisticians is used across our own organisation for funding, policy and evaluation purposes. Information is also made publicly available on our website in the form of statistical reports, performance indicators and other resources of value to those working within further and higher education.
