Typeentity
Short nameCourse
Description

A combination of subject and qualification that defines what a student is aiming for.

Applicable toEngland Scotland
Coverage

Compulsory for all returns.

Notes

Every instance must be linked to one (and only one) course. Course records can exist without links to any instances if it is easier for a provider to return all courses rather than just those that are active in the reporting year.

The Course.COURSEID field is the primary key for the Course entity. It also exists on the Instance as a foreign key.

Where provision within the provider's organisation allows multiple possible qualification outcomes, providers must return separate course records for each. Even where groups of students aiming for different qualification outcomes are taught in the same classes, each group must be returned on a different course with a different course aim.
