All date fields in the Student Record must be completed using the ISO8601 format of YYYY-MM-DD. The specification of this field follows the data policies set out in the MIAP Common Data Definitions project.

If the thesis has not been submitted an empty element should be returned with the ReasonForNull attribute set to 9 (not applicable), i.e:

           <PHDSUB ReasonForNull="9"></PHDSUB>

This date should not be updated if a thesis is resubmitted.

Where Y0/Y1/Y2 appear in business rules, these refer to the reporting period Y1-Y2 (e.g. for the 2007-08 reporting period, Y0 is 2006, Y1 is 2007 and Y2 is 2008).
