This field will be used in conjunction with KISCourse.TITLE (KISCourse.TITLEW for institutions in Wales) and KISCourse.KISAIM to provide the KIS Course title. This will be displayed on the KIS widget and on the Unistats website.

This field allows institutions to distinguish between courses that do or do not lead to an honours degree.

An 'honours' degree refers to an institutional definition, rather than a UK-wide concept.

This field must not be returned when KISCourse.KISTYPE = 3.

Example - Medieval History BA (Hons)

  • KISCourse.TITLE: 'Medieval History' - natural capitilisation only.
  • KISCourse.TITLEW: 'Hanes Canoloesol' - natural capitilisation only. (Welsh institutions only)
  • KISCourse.KISAIM: 000 'BA'
  • KISCourse.HONOURS: 1 'This is an honours (Hons) degree course'
