About our data

The data from exhibit 1 comes from the Scottish Funding Council's Infact database, for students in 2016-17. The figures presented here will differ slightly from those in the report due to different methods used to download the data from Infact. For Tableau, we have broken down the data as much as possible.

No HE data is available for the colleges in the Highlands and Islands region, or for SRUC.
