Data model

Version 1.0 Produced 2014-06-26

The HESA Institution profile record specification is based on a logical data model which defines the entities covered by the record and the relationship between these entities.

In data modelling terms, an entity is a thing about which information needs to be held. Examples in the Institution profile record include the Campus and the Institution entity.

The data model may differ from the file structure required for the submission of the data, as a number of attributes can be expressed as repeating elements for efficiency. However, for the Institution profile record, the data model and the file structure for submission are identical. For further details, please see File structure.
