A discrete unit of learning and/or research
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
Compulsory for all returns
Although the term 'Module' is used to describe this entity, the definition covers any discrete unit of learning and/or research. The aim of collecting this information is to provide a greater level of detail about the student's activity than can be ascertained from the course-level information. Specifically, this includes the detail of subjects studied during the year, credit scheme information and HESA cost centre information that is used in conjunction with the FTE value shown in Instance.STULOAD.
In cases where students are studying within academic structures that are not 'modular', the module could be defined as a single unit to cover a year's worth of activity on a course.
It is recommended that in cases where a module is used in both HE and FE instances, providers return two separate module records because different validation needs to be applied.
Quality rules to follow
