The HEAPES data:
- gives an early indication, for purposes including government planning, of the number of students starting designated full-time, distance learning and part-time courses in the academic year 2017-18
- allows us to monitor whether providers subject to a student number control (SNC) are likely to exceed their allocations. The Department for Education will use the data to inform SNCs for the 2018-19 academic year.
