This flag will be used on the Unistats website to identify if the course changes its teaching location during any stage of the course.
A change in teaching location means that the course is taught at more than one location and students will change location during the course. KISCourse.LOCCHNGE would not be returned where the course is offered at multiple locations but the student remains in one location for the duration. For example Poppleton University offers a Marine Biology degree programme. For years one and two students study at Poppleton's campus in London but then in the third year are taught in Plymouth. In this case the KISCourse.LOCCHNGE field should be returned as 1 'the course does change location'.
This field must not be returned when KISCourse.DISTANCE = 1.
Code 1 'the course does change location' must not be used to indicate that the student must undertake a study year abroad or sandwich placement.
