Annex B - Other outcomes from the 2012/13 Student record consultation

 

This Annex provides feedback on the other issues that were consulted on in October 2011.

Ordinary Residence for Fees Purposes

Following feedback from the sector, and with the SSN expected to provide a robust link to SLC data, this requirement has been dropped for 2012/13. Statutory Customers will keep this issue under review and may request that it is added to the consultation process for a future year.

Fees paid by SLC

With the SSN added to the Student record for 2012/13, this requirement has been dropped.

National Scholarship Programme

Following feedback from the sector, this requirement has been scaled back and simplified to a single additional code in the Instance.INITIATIVES field (see Annex A ).

Student support eligibility

Following feedback from the sector and with the SSN expected to provide a robust link to SLC data, this requirement has been dropped for 2012/13. Statutory Customers will keep this issue under review and may request that it is added to the consultation process for a future year.

Measuring student mobility

The consultation contained a number of proposals to capture more information about measuring student mobility. These fields are not being implemented for 2012/13 and further work in this area is being undertaken to clarify requirements and to clarify the relationship with existing fields in the Student record.
