This field records the disadvantage uplift factor for a learner for whom a disadvantage uplift is being claimed.

Applicable toEngland

All instances at institutions in England where Instance.FESTUMK = 1, 3 or 4 and Instance.REDUCEDI = 00 or 01


For many learners eligible for widening participation funding, the factor can be entered automatically from the file of postcodes and factors available on the Data Service website.

Where a learner comes from a ward eligible for widening participation funding and the postcode is not on the Data Service file of postcodes and widening participation factors, the factor can be entered manually from the file of wards and widening participation factors also available on the website. The revised index should be used for special cases and where the postcode is not on the Data Service file. Institutions should keep evidence of the learner's eligibility for widening participation funding.

Where a learner is not eligible for a disadvantage uplift, 0.0000 should be returned.
