Notes

Where course academic years span two HESA reporting years, institutions in Scotland have a choice in how they return Student FTE in Instance.STULOAD (see extra guidance for more detail).

The choice is:

  • 1. 50:50 approach, the load is apportioned between the HESA reporting years on a pro-rata basis.
  • 2. 100:0 approach, all the load is assumed to be in the first HESA reporting year
  • 3. 0:100 approach, all the load is assumed to be in the second HESA reporting year

Note that the 50:50 method involves a pro-rata split of FTE, not necessarily an even split, across years.

This field indicates the choice made for this student instance.

Course academic years which fit within the HESA reporting year should be returned as code 1 in this field.
