This updated edition of ‘Higher Education in England: Key Facts’ provides a statistical overview of key sector trends and developments in 2016. Using the most recent data, it draws together key findings from a range of reports published by HEFCE over the past year to provide a robust, accessible evidence base. All the data analysed in the report can be found online.

We hope that the report will be a useful resource for all those with an interest in higher education. At a time when the sector is undergoing significant reform, and as the implications for higher education of the vote to leave the European Union begin to play out, the role of well-evidenced analysis in stimulating debate and discussion, and informing policy and practice, is even more important.
