About us

Our data sources

The Hotcourses International websites list course data from a wide range of accredited institutions based in 48 countries worldwide. Our listings only contain courses that are accredited by a recognised awarding body and offer English as the main medium of instruction.

The Hotcourses Group provides a data collection service for its partners which allows us to gather the most up-to-date information available at the time, while also providing institutions access to a content management tool should they wish to manage their own course listings on our sites. In the UK, the Hotcourses Group has a partnership with UCAS for undergraduate courses. UCAS, the Universities and Colleges Admission Service, is the official admissions service for students applying for UK undergraduate programmes.
