All KISCourses.

Valid entries and labels

Full-time and part-time in the context of this field relates to how the provider advertises the delivery of the course.

If the course is advertised as a full-time course, but made available part-time on an ad hoc basis, then code 1 'Full-time' should be returned. If the course is only advertised part-time then code 2 'Part-time' should be returned.

If the provider advertises the course as both full and part-time, then code 3 'Both' should be returned. This will produce two KIS in the output file, each with linked NSS and DLHE data.

There are some exceptions to returning both, for further information please see the Fees and support page.

Multiple KISCourse.KISTYPE 2s with different levels (calculated through KISCourse.KISAIM) or different KISCourse.KISMODEs (full-time or part-time), cannot be linked to a single KISCourse.KISTYPE 3. A separate KISCourse.KISTYPE 3 will be required for each.
