This field should contain a URL that links to further explanation about the assessment methods for the course. In most cases it is expected that this will be a link directly to the programme specification.

This field must not be returned where KISCourse.KISTYPE = 2

Valid URL

This field must contain a valid website URL. Providers must ensure that URLs are active and link to the correct page. Validation checks will only check for basic structure, to ensure that the URL starts with either http or https and contains only Latin non-accented characters.

For KISTYPE = 3 the URL should point to a generic page that covers the topics for courses in that subject area. That page may also point to pages that provide details for each course covered by that subject area. It is recognised that this might mean providers setting up new web pages for this purpose.

For further information on accessibility and validation of URL fields, please see our further guidance on URLs page.
