All modules


Institutions may code up to 16 occurrences of module subject. It is up to institutions to decide whether or not to return details of cost centres which are contributing teaching/learning amounting to less than 5% of the proportion of the module.

An entry is required for each subject area of study of the module regardless of whether this subject area of study is taught by the reporting institution or not.

Where 2 different subjects are taught in the same cost centre, there should be separate entries for each.

A breakdown at instance level will be acceptable for students out on placement or exchange out.

Where the sum of percentages does not equal 100% (e.g. because of the exclusion of cost centres contributing less than 5% of the teaching/learning) then the percentage of the subjects returned should be pro-rated so that the total becomes 100%. However, there will be a tolerance of totals between 98% and 102%.
