The CHE receives HEMIS data from the Department of Higher Education and Training and collects data from StatsSA and makes this publically available through VitalStats publications and the Performance indicators project. Specific data queries can be directed to the Information Manager.

No, data must be verified by institutions before being made publically available and for this reason the most recent data available is for two years prior to the current year. The Department of Higher Education and Training may be able to assist with more recent data in some instances.

Reliable data on the size and shape of the private higher education sector is not available at present. However, the South African Qualifications Authority collects information for the National Learners' Records Database and can provide some detail on the private institutions.
