Notes

Providers should ensure that a student's contact preferences are collected at enrolment and recorded accurately using combinations RUI1 and RUI2 and the PMC codes.

Valid combinations of ContactPreference.CONTPREFTYPE and ContactPreference.CONTPREFCODE are:

CONTPREFTYPE CONTPREFCODE Definition
RUI 1 Learner does not wish to be contacted about courses or learning opportunities
RUI 2 Learner does not wish to be contacted for survey and research
RUI 4 Learner is not to be contacted, for example where a learner has suffered severe illness during the programme or other circumstance
RUI 5 Learner is not to be contacted - learner has died
PMC 1 Learner does not wish to be contacted by post
PMC 2 Learner does not wish to be contacted by telephone
PMC 3 Learner does not wish to be contacted by e-mail

A Contact preference type and code of RUI4 or RUI5 should be used by the provider if it needs to update the original student preferences recorded in order to prevent contact with the student for the reasons given. These codes are used to overwrite the data originally captured from the student at enrolment.

If a contact preference type and code of RUI4 or RUI5 are recorded, then no other RUI or PMC codes must be returned.
