Notes

For England and Wales, an LSC/DCELLS student is defined as a student following a course leading to a general qualification aim at FE level and any other student following a course funded by LSC or WAG-DCELLS (and which may be at FE or HE level). Students coded 1, 3 or 4 will be regarded as FE funding council students. Students coded 2 will be assumed to be HE level students, with no LSC/DCELLS funding.

Code 3 'The student is an LSC/DCELLS funded student studying at HE level'

The funding councils have advised that LSC and WAG-DCELLS do not ordinarily fund students studying at HE level within HEIs. It is therefore recommended that any institution who believes they have students in this category contact HESA before coding.

Access to HE courses are regarded as FE level courses.

'Foundation years that are not integrated into an HE level course are generally considered to be FE level'.

Reason required

To distinguish between FE and HE level of study, and between FE and HE funding, so as to allow separation of HE and FE work and funding in HEIs.
