Course Location

return to field list
Short nameCourseLocation

This entity records details of the KIS course location and UCAS course code.

Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales

All KISCourses where KISCourse.KISTYPE = 1 or 2 and KISCourse.DISTANCE = 0. Optional for all KISCourses where KISCourse.KISTYPE = 1 or 2, where KISCourse.DISTANCE = 1.


This entity cannot be returned if KIS Course is coded KISCourse.KISTYPE = 3.

There may be cases where the course can be undertaken at more than one location, for example, where the first year of the course is taken wholly at three different further education colleges (FECs) before moving to a provider. In such cases, KISCourse.CourseLocation should be returned three times, each pointing to the different FECs.

Within the CourseLocation entity, the minimum occurrences of Courselocation.LOCID is 0, so that a CourseLocation entity can be submitted for a course where KISCourse.DISTANCE = 1. Such courses would previously have failed schema validation, as they do not have a CourseLocation.LOCID value to submit in this field.
