This field records a two character identifier for the teaching location.
Example 1 - Institution owned campus
Example 2 - A franchise partner
If the course is undertaken at multiple locations in the first year, KISCourse.LOCID should represent the location where the majority of time is spent.
If time is split evenly between locations, then KISCourse.LOCID should represent a central location for all first year components.
There may be cases where the course can be undertaken at more than one location, for example, where the first year of the course is taken wholly at three different further education colleges (FECs) before moving to an HEI. In such cases, KISCourse.LOCID should be returned three times, each pointing to the different FECs.
