About dataHE:

We started in 2017 to do one thing: help universities use data better. Our products run in a powerful code-based environment, purpose built for higher education and created in-house by our data scientists. Read about our team below. You can get in touch with us here.


Our starting point is data. Our work is to find out what it says.


We write code so our analysis for you is exactly as it needs to be.


We’re expert in understanding how HE works through data.


We want what you want: successful students in an efficient sector.
