077Celtic studies

This field will be used to link DLHE and NSS data into the KIS where no HESACourse or ILRAims entities exist for this KISCourse. Further details on the mapping of DLHE and NSS data are provided in Inclusion of NSS and DLHE data.

This field is required when KISCourse.KISTYPE = 3 and both HESACourse or ILRAims entities are missing (i.e. for new courses).

This field must not be returned for KISCourse.KISTYPE = 1 or 2.

Code 077 – ‘Celtic studies' should be used where Celtic studies is offered as part of a multiple subject course.

JACS2.0 should be used until the 2014 KIS as this is the first year that HESA student data using JACS3.0 will be available for linking. In the transition year we will map the JACS2.0 data in the 2014/15 KIS record to JACS3.0 for the purposes of aggregating the data, using the JACS3 mapping document.
