The University is required to return anonymised staff data to HESA (the Higher Education Statistics Agency) every year. This return is high profile and important to the University as it is used to inform:
- Funding decisions
- Government policy
- League tables
- News and media coverage
- Monitoring of equality and diversity in the sector
- Internal performance reviews and planning
All uses of the HESA Staff Record must comply with the Data Protection Act 1998. From 25 May 2018, the DPA will be replaced by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). All uses of HESA information will comply with the GDPR from that date onwards. You can find out more in the HESA Staff Collection Notice.
New fields have been added for this year so please check your record is complete and as accurate as possible including any new qualifications. This should only take a couple of minutes.
Please access the Staff HESA Return page on this link and follow the step by step instructions.
