Data quality and security

Data Quality

The university’s student records must be accurate as they underpin many activities including fees and visa, as well as providing a permanent record of students' achievements. The records are an important source of evidence for decision making within the University and also nationally through the HESA return. The Data Quality Team is responsible for monitoring and cleansing data for its onward transition to HESA.

Data Protection

The University’s student records are retained and shared in accordance with data protection principles and record retention guidance. Contact the Data Quality Team for more information.
