About the Event

HESA Data Futures

Many of you will be aware of HESA Data Futures and the changes and challenges it will be introducing to our sector and in particular the HESA student data return from 2023.

It provides an opportunity for HESA colleagues to present an update on Data Futures, the next steps and plans as we move towards 2023. 

The workshop will also be interactive, and two/three institutions will lead on their planning and share best practice and guidance of their journeys. It will give participants an opportunity to discuss this important initiative with peers. Depending on numbers, it would be hoped to break out into discussion sessions around student system vendors.

This session is for institutional members only
