Description

This field describes whether an institution is opting to complete the fields Instance.LOADYRA, Instance.LOADYRB and StudentOnModule.MODYR that will allow HEFCE to remove the approximations that are currently included in their re-creation of the HESES return which counts FTE against years of instance rather than HESA reporting years.

Notes

Institutions can opt to provide additional information in the Student record which HEFCE will then use to count FTE against years of instance in place of the approximations used in the HESES recreation algorithms.

If institutions do opt to provide this information, then the fields Instance.LOADYRA, Instance.LODYRB and StudentOnModule.MODYR must be completed for all student instances in the record. Institutions would indicate this by completing this field with code 1 ‘Institution choosing to provide additional information in records to reduce the reliance on HEFCE approximations for HESES recreation’.

If institutions are content to continue using the HEFCE algorithms, then this field will be completed with Code 0 ‘Institution relying on HEFCE algorithms for HESES recreation’

HEFCE advises that provision of the additional information is only likely to make a significant difference for institutions with high numbers of student instances with non-standard academic years and where these numbers are changing substantially year on year or the intensity of study or cost centre mix changes over the duration of the programme. The change to counting method for HESES11 means that even where these fields are completed HEFCE will continue to have to make some approximations.

Change management notesGuidance updated to state that this field is used by HEFCE to determine to what extent approximations should be used when recreating the HESES population. Valid entry '1' revised from 'Institution choosing to provide additional information in records & not rely on HEFCE approximations for HESES recreation' to 'Institution choosing to provide additional information in records to reduce the reliance on HEFCE approximations for HESES recreation' to more accurately state the level of approximations used by HEFCE.
