Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales

All KISCourses where institution is an HEI, and both KISCourse and HESACourse.HESACOURSEID existed in 2009/10 and/or 2010/11, and KISCourse.KISTYPE = 1


This entity records the HESA course(s) that the KIS record relates to. KIS links to HESA course information that is one or two years in arrears. For 2012/13, HESA course identifiers for 2009/10 and 2010/11 should be provided.

Where a course links to more than one course on the HESA record all relevant Course.COURSEIDs should be given. This multiple linking should only occur where for systems or technical reasons the same KISCourse links to multiple courses on the HESA record, and should not be used to group cognate courses.

The same HESA course identifiers may be reported for different KIS courses where the institution admits to, or markets, the same course under different names.

This field must not be returned where KISCourse.KISTYPE = 2 or 3.

This entity can only be returned if the institution is an HEI and was returning data to HESA in 2009/10 and/or 2010/11.
