The identifier for the primary provider of teaching entered in this field may be obtained from the UK Register of Learning Providers.
For students entering through UCAS this information will be available from UCAS via the *J transaction. It is not expected that the information contained within the *J will be updated by providers, however where updates are made these should be made with reference to the listing issued by UCAS to providers.
UCAS will make available a UKPRN code for the provider. Where a UKPRN is not available one of the five generic codes below, or 9999 for unknown, will be used.
UCAS holds the provider from which the UCAS application was received. HESA recognises that this will give a small percentage statistical error in the data for this field.
For non-UCAS entrants providers may use the generic codes and not provide details of individual named providers. The generic codes are:
If the previous provider is not known and none of the other generic codes are suitable, code as 9999. For example UKPRNs may not be available in circumstances where the establishment ceased to exist prior to the first issue of UKPRNs.
Submitted UKPRNs will be verified against a valid list obtained from the UKRLP.
