The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) is the official Government agency for the collection, analysis and dissemination of quantitative information about higher education in the UK. Like other Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), the University of York has a statutory duty to pass certain personal data on current and former students to HESA.
The University also supplies HESA with contact details of recent graduates, for use in the Graduate Outcomes survey. The following data collection notices have been produced by HESA for HEIs, explaining the purposes for which the data is gathered and the ways in which these are used.
The Statement is updated annually and can be found at, https://www.hesa.ac.uk/about/regulation/data-protection/notices
Note: Reference in this notice to 'we' and 'us' refers to the higher education provider which you attend/attended (i.e. the University of York).
