SLC statistic publications detailing financial support for students in higher education


As part of SLC’s ongoing commitment to improving accessibility of our websites and content, we’ve made changes to the way we publish our statistics. The changes in the 2023 publication mainly affect the way we provide visual information. This includes:

  • including descriptive information of the full time-series for each graph within the main body of the statistics publication.
  • providing data used to form each graph in accessible / downloadable tables.
  • changing the way we present charts and graphs to be more accessible, including changes to colour, labels and legends.
