Collection of this information will allow better monitoring of funding allocations by units of assessment.
A students should be allocated to the same Unit of Assessment as their supervisor(s). For the 2007/08 HESA Staff Record all academic staff are required to be allocated to RAE Units of Assessment, even if they are not to be submitted to the RAE. Therefore all students will be able to be allocated appropriately regardless of whether their supervisor is submitted.
Where a student was supervised by more than one member of staff and/or these supervisors are returned in more than one UOA, the student may be returned split either according to the agreed division of responsibility, or in proportion to the number of supervisors.
If the student's supervisor was not employed by the reporting institution at the time of most recent RAE, then the student should be assigned to the unit of assessment which is closest in academic content to their subject of study. (The unit of assessment chosen should be from the list of subjects defined by the most recent RAE, not any future RAE.)
This field occurs as a pair with RAEData.UOAPCNT with a maximum of 3 pairs permitted.
