This field must be returned where the student is part of a formal collaborative arrangement for doctoral research training, and is jointly supervised by supervisors at other UK providers, in industry or at overseas partners.
In the case of students at partnerships where the application and administration is handled jointly with no concept of a single provider responsible for the student’s teaching/supervision students should still be returned by a single provider for their entire programme to prevent double-counting.
The majority of the consortia involved in this type of provision have the concept of a 'lead provider’ for individual students. Where applicable, this provider alone should be responsible for returning the student to HESA for their entire programme. Where no such concept exists, a single provider should be nominated from amongst the consortia for this purpose.
Where the UKPRN for a provider is not known, values can be obtained from the UK Register of Learning Providers..
Where supervising providers do not have a UKPRN the generic codes below may be used:
