Notes

Providers who do not make a HEAPES return to HEFCE need not assess their students for eligibility, and may return code NA 'Not applicable' in this field.

For providers who do make a HEAPES return, eligibility must be assessed for all students and coded as appropriate.

If the instance meets the criteria for the HEFCE HEAPES population for the relevant reporting year, regardless of whether or not it was included in the HEAPES data collection to HEFCE, it should be coded '1' in this field. Further guidance may be found on the HEFCE website. For example, the 2015/16 AP student record would relate to the HEAPES15 return.

The field is located on InstancePeriod to allow for those instances that undergo a change in their HEAPES status within the reporting period to be recorded as such.
