Opening up UCAS Data

"The 'Big Idea' behind my entry to the TSO competition was a simple oneā€“make UCAS course data (course code, title and institution) available as data. By opening up the data we make it possible for third parties to construct services and applications based around complete data skeleton of all the courses offered for undergraduate entry through clearing in a particular year across UK higher education.

The data acts as scaffolding that can be used to develop consumer facing applications across HE (e.g. improved course choice applications) as well as support internal 'vertical' activities within HEIs that may also be transferable across HEIs.

Primary value is generated from taking the course code scaffolding and annotating it with related data. Access to this dataset may be sold on in a B2B context via data platform services. Consumer facing applications with their own revenue streams may also be built on top of the data platform.

This idea makes data available that can potentially disrupt the currently discovery model for course choice and selection (but in its current form, not in university application or enrolment), in Higher Education in the UK."

(Tony Hirst, 2011)
