University Performance Indicators

The indicators are designed to provide reliable information on the nature and performance of the higher education sector in the UK and constitute a consistent set of measures. This will contribute to a greater public accountability by the sector, as well as ensuring that policy decisions can be made on the basis of consistent and reliable information. The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) calculates and publishes the UKPIs on behalf of the UK HE funding bodies.

Publications & statistics

The PI publications, showing the indicators for each UK Higher Education institution, are available from the HESA website.

Summary tables showing statistics for the whole UK, based on the latest UKPIs with previous years' data for comparison, are available.

Participation Indicators for Scottish HEIs

From 2016-17 Participation Indicators for Scottish HEIs are published within the SFC Report on Widening Access (see table 25 in the background tables). 

Previous Participation Indicators were published by SFC in a separate publication.
