    On the registration form I have to fill in, I seemingly have to state my HESA number-but I have no idea what this is. Maybe it's something that's filled in by the administration at Uni. Does anyone know anything about this? :confused:

    HESA is the higher education statistics agency - do you have guidance notes with the form? If not, contact the relevant people and ask for their advice.

    You will only have a HESA number if you have already studied at a UK university. If you haven't leave it blank - only unis can request new numbers.

    http://www.hesa.ac.uk/index.php/cont...w/131/169/1/1/ gives more info on the data that unis hold and pass on to HESA (and which can be purchased from HESA to produce league tables).

    http://www.hesa.ac.uk/index.php/content/view/144/176/ gives details on how to have your data withheld from data requests.
