The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) collects and publishes statistics on students enrolled at UK Higher Education Providers.

Table 1b of the Statistical First Release ‘Higher Education Enrolments and Qualifications Obtained in the UK 2013/14’ provides the number of enrolments at both Higher Education Institutions and Further Education Colleges by qualification aim.
