  1. Proportions are of those Higher Education Providers returning education tier of restriction data, not the whole sector.
  2. Where providers reported a change in tier of restriction during the 7 day period, we report the latest. Providers are able to report different tiers for different locations (such as separate campuses). Where they have done so, we report the highest tier.
