For alignment with funding definitions.
Coding should be consistent with funding council early statistics. Refer to relevant funding council for full definitions.
Normally when code 2 is returned, then either Instance.RSNEND and Instance.ENDDATE will be completed to end the student instance, or Instance.NOTACT will be completed to show the study is suspended. It has become more common for students to fail to complete the current year of instance but continue to study with the institution, this is particularly true of part-time students who drop a module.
Code 4 'is as defined in HEFCW HESES, and should be used for students studying full-time on taught courses only.
Code 9 can be used if the HESA reporting year does not contain, in part or in whole, a year of instance which has previously, is, or will be, returned to HESES. However, use of code 9 is an option. Institutions can, if they so wish, use the other codes for all records.
Where a student undertakes a foundation degree and bridging course in the same HESA reporting year Instance.FUNDCOMP, should reflect whether the student completed the foundation degree and will therefore usually be returned with a value of 1. Similarly where the student progresses to a degree after completion of the bridging course this field should reflect the completion status of the degree.
