Reason required

Collection of this data will allow more accurate allocation of modules to reporting years for monitoring of completion and achievement, and of funding.


Code 5 'Not coded' is an acceptable default code for use in this field unless otherwise indicated by the institution's funding council. Institutions in Wales must not use code 5. Institutions in England are encouraged to complete module information on the Student Record, to enable HEFCE to take this information into account in the future distribution of funding.

Code 6 should normally only be used where students have modules which genuinely span 3 reporting years. This is likely to be relatively rare, and will most likely be relevant to Postgraduate research students where a single module is being used to represent a programme of study.
