Description

This field describes whether a provider is opting to complete the fields Instance.LOADYRA, Instance.LOADYRB and StudentOnModule.MODYR that will allow HEFCE to remove the approximations that are currently included in their re-creation of the HESES return which counts FTE against years of instance rather than HESA reporting years.

Notes

Providers can opt to provide additional information in the Student record which HEFCE will then use to count FTE against years of instance in place of the approximations used in the HESES recreation algorithms.

If providers do opt to provide this information, then the fields Instance.LOADYRA, Instance.LODYRB and StudentOnModule.MODYR must be completed for all student instances in the record. Providers would indicate this by completing this field with code 1 'Provider choosing to provide additional information in records to reduce the reliance on HEFCE approximations for HESES recreation'.

If providers are content to continue using the HEFCE algorithms, then this field will be completed with Code 0 'Provider relying on HEFCE algorithms for HESES recreation'

HEFCE advises that provision of the additional information is only likely to make a significant difference for providers with high numbers of student instances with non-standard academic years and where these numbers are changing substantially year on year or the intensity of study or HESA cost centre mix changes over the duration of the programme. The change to counting method for HESES11 means that even where these fields are completed HEFCE will continue to have to make some approximations.
