|Name:||Location of study|
|Description:||This field describes the location at which the student is studying.|
|Notes:|| Institutions are now strongly encouraged to return any student studying for the whole of their programme of study outside the UK. These students should be identified using code 7 'Student studying for the whole of their programme of study (to date) outside of the UK' in this field. A reduced return has been introduced in order to increase coverage of the record to include these students. The status of this request for information is that it is not currently a condition of funding, except where the students are funded by the relevant funding council.|
As codes 1 - 5 and 8 have become 'Not used', continuing students will have to be re-coded using new field 165/150, Collaboration/Franchising, and field 71, Location of study.
Location of study - The studies described should relate to the FTE reported in field 74, Student FTE, which in turn are described in detail in fields 100-147/85-100.
Codes A - C can be used only for FE students at institutions in England and Wales.
Code E, 'On industrial placement for a proportion of the year' should be used where the student undertakes a full-time placement lasting for at least 10 weeks. Where a student undertakes a placement on a part-time basis this should only be included if, when summed, it is equivalent to 10 weeks full-time work.
Where both code E 'On industrial placement for a proportion of the year' and code G 'On study year abroad for a proportion of the year' apply in the same academic year, code E 'On industrial placement for a proportion of the year' should be used in preference to code G 'On study year abroad for a proportion of the year'.
|Reason Required:|| In order to provide information about the location and patterns of study.|
To provide information about students studying overseas.
To provide a measure of the numbers of students on industrial placements or study years abroad during the reporting period.
