Notes

Providers in England

For providers in England this field is required for all full and part-time undergraduate and taught postgraduate instances, irrespective whether they have applied for student finance or not to SLC and should be coded using the HEFCE definition of fee regime.

The HEFCE definition of fee regime, whilst closely mimicking the fee regulations is different to that in the fee regulations. Providers should therefore ensure that they use the definition of old and new regime in the most recent HESES publication, the definition used in 2011-12 can be found in annex Q of HESES11 (HEFCE 2011/27), the definition for 2012 is given in HESES12.

Providers in Wales

For providers in Wales, the SLC will have this information for students who apply for student finance so this field is not required if the Student Support Number (Student.SSN) is returned. It is required for all students not applying for student finance.

Code 10 'Pre-Sept 2012 regime' applies to those students who started pre-September 2012 and, hence, are not covered by the new fee regime.

Code 10 'Pre-Sept 2012 regime' should also be used for students starting at the provider in 2012 who are not under the new fee regime. This will be, for example, students who transfer in from another provider or come from another provider to do a top up to a degree, having started their original course before 1 September 2012.

Providers in Scotland

For providers in Scotland, the SLC will be able to provide this information to HESA for students who are paying tuition fees (typically fee regime 20 'Post-Sept 2012 regime' these are students domiciled in England, Wales and Northern Ireland) and so this field can either be completed by the HEP directly or be populated with SLC data if the Student Support Number (Student.SSN) is returned. It is required for all students not applying for student finance.

Code 10 'Pre-Sept 2012 regime' applies to those students who started pre-September 2012 and, hence, are not covered by the new fee regime, as well as those students who started post-September 2012 and are Scottish domiciled students in providers in Scotland or EU domiciled students in providers in Scotland.

Code 10 'Pre-Sept 2012 regime' should also be used for students starting at the provider in 2012 who are not under the new fee regime. This will be, for example, students who transfer in from another provider or come from another provider to do a top up to a degree, having started their original course before 1 September 2012.

Code 20 'Post-Sept 2012 regime' applies to rest of UK students who start post-September 2012 and who are paying de-regulated tuition fees. Students who are paying the regulated fees should be coded 10 'Pre-Sept 2012 regime'.

Providers in Northern Ireland

For providers in Northern Ireland, the SLC will have this information for students who apply for student finance so this field is not required if the Student Support Number (Student.SSN) is returned. It is required for all students not applying for student finance.

Code 10 'Pre-Sept 2012 regime' applies to those students who started pre-September 2012 and, hence, are not covered by the new fee regime, as well as those students who started post-September 2012 and are Northern Ireland domiciled students in providers in Northern Ireland, or EU domiciled students in providers in Northern Ireland.

Code 10 'Pre-Sept 2012 regime' should also be used for students starting at the provider in 2012 who are not under the new fee regime. This will be, for example, students who transfer in from another provider or come from another provider to do a top up to a degree, having started their original course before 1 September 2012.

Students not subject to regulated fees

Students who are not subject to regulated fees (for example, those studying with alternative providers) should be returned using code 30 'Not subject to regulated fees'.
