If the course is undertaken at multiple locations in the first year, CourseLocation.LOCID should represent the location where the majority of time is spent.
Where a student's time in the first year is split evenly between locations, providers should pick one of those locations. In deciding which location to pick, providers may wish to consider whether either of the locations is more likely to act as a hub for the student’s activity (for example, because the library or other facilities are on one of the sites).
