Higher Education Information Database for Institutions (HEIDI) is a web-based management information system that has been developed to enable institutions to access, extract and manipulate data for essential planning and reporting purposes.

HEIDI is run by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) on a subscription basis to higher education institutions and approved HE-sector bodies that operate on a not-for-profit basis.

HEIDI provides data relating to Students, Staff, Finance, Estates Management, Applications, National Student Survey and Research Excellence Framework.
