This entity records details for HESA course(s) which will be used to link data to KIS records.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
This entity records the HESA course(s) that the KIS record relates to. KIS links to HESA course information that is one or two years in arrears. For 2015/16, HESA course identifiers for 2011/12, 2012/13 and 2013/14 should be provided.
Where a course links to more than one course on the HESA record all relevant Course.COURSEIDs should be given. This multiple linking should only occur where for systems or technical reasons the same KISCourse links to multiple courses on the HESA record, and should not be used to group cognate courses.
The same HESA course identifiers may be reported for different KIS courses where the provider admits to, or markets, the same course under different names.
In adding links to HESA courses, only the HESA courses which are the embodiment of the course for which a KIS is being produced should be linked. For example, where an provider is producing two KIS for two similar courses one with a compulsory sandwich year (KISCourse.SANDWICH = 2) and one where the sandwich course is not available (KISCourse.SANDWICH = 0), then the KIS where the sandwich course is not available should only link to the non-sandwich course on the HESA and vice-versa.
This field must not be returned where KISCourse.KISTYPE = 2 or 3.
