Unistats

A new web-site that features a standardised set of data called the Key Information Set (KIS).

 

The completely revised Unistats web-site provides extensive information for over 31,000 courses in the UK, including...
- student satisfaction ratings,
- graduate salaries and employment,
- tuition fees and
- financial support, and
- the cost of accommodation.

 

The new KIS data have been collated after consulting students about the information they find most useful when they are choosing higher education courses.
