Version 1.2 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 (06011) HESA country code list to the new (C07051) standard is shown below.

(#1) For 2008/09 in response to St Martin (French part) and St Barthelemy voting for succession from Guadeloupe and subsequently being granted overseas collectivity of France (COM), the country code list under FR French nationality will be changed as follows:

06011 HESA description 08051 08051
Country HESA code HESA code
Code DOMICILE NATION
1653 FRANCE {includes CORSICA} FR FR
- GUADELOUPE {GP}
- MARTINIQUE {MQ}
- ST PIERRE AND MIQUELON {PM}
- FRENCH GUIANA {GF}
- ST MARTIN (FRENCH PART) {MF}
- ST BARTHELEMY {BL}

(#2) For 2007/08 a new code for Kosovo (QO) has been added to the code list in acknowledgement of the UK’s recognition of Kosovo as an independent nation. This code is available for use for 2007-08, but institutions are not required to re-code existing students.

(#3) For 2007/08 DOMICILE the separate country codes XF, XG, XH, XI must be used. Only if the individual country is not known should XK be used. The code GB is invalid for DOMICILE.
For 2007/08 NATION the code GB must be used.
