Country codes


return to index

Version 1.5 Produced 2008-05-30

The 2007/08 Student Record uses a country code list based on the ISO-3166-1 Alpha-2 list of country codes and adapted by the Office for National Statistics. This list is a Common Data Definition standard within the MIAP programme.

A mapping from the old HESA country code list to the new standard is shown below. An asterisk against an old HESA or UCAS code identifies cases where an old code has been split into multiple new codes.
