Most courses will fail KIS data demands over lack of salary information

Most courses will fail KIS data demands over lack of salary information | Simon Baker | Times Higher Education | 16 June 2011

Just one in seven full-time undergraduate courses and one in 50 part-time programmes will be able to present complete information for prospective students as part of the new standard datasets that universities must publish from next year. The lack of specific coverage for every course, in large part down to limitations on salary data, means that only 40 per cent of the student body in England will be covered by full Key Information Sets KIS, according to a report on the proposals. However, it is hoped that many more single-honours courses – 95 per cent of full-time and 35 per cent of part-time – will be covered by aggregating information and using graduate earnings figures over wider subject areas.
