Staff Collection Notice (last updated 2 August, 2021)

The HESA Staff Record

Every year, we send some of the information we hold about you to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). HESA is the official source of data about UK universities and higher education colleges www.hesa.ac.uk. Your HESA information does not contain your name or contact details, but may contain your Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID.org) number if you have one. If you leave your current employment and move to another higher education provider we may pass your HESA Staff ID number to your new employer to enable research into employment in the higher education sector.

Minor updates to the Staff Collection Notice (including organisation name changes and clarification of previously specified purposes) may be made at any time.
