How it works
We generally monitor the funding returns that institutions make to us by re-creating these returns from data submitted to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) or through the Individualised Learner Record (ILR).
This process involves applying algorithms to HESA and ILR fields. These derived fields are then aggregated to reconstruct what the original student return would have looked like for an institution.
We then produce summaries and comparisons of the main elements of the re-creation against the original funding return and present these in an Excel workbook (the 'output').
The funding data reconciliations
We produce the following funding data reconciliations:
See How to access outputs for further details about obtaining these outputs.
