Notes

For England and Wales, an ESFA/DfES student is defined as a student following a course leading to a general qualification aim at FE level and any other student following a course funded by the ESFA or WG-DfES (and which may be at FE or HE level). Students coded 1, 3 or 4 will be regarded as FE funding council students. Students coded 2 will be assumed to be HE level students, with no ESFA/DfES funding.

Code 3 'The student is an ESFA/DfES funded student studying at HE level'

The funding councils have advised that the ESFA and WG-DfES do not ordinarily fund students studying at HE level within HEPs. The exception to this are HE-level component aims with an Apprenticeship Standards qualification (Code 5). It is therefore recommended that any provider who believes they have other students in this category contact HESA before coding.

Access to HE courses are regarded as FE level courses.

Foundation years that are not integrated into an HE level course are generally considered to be FE level.

Code 5 'The student is an ESFA/DfES funded learner studying a programme which is not at a specific level'

Apprenticeship Standards programme aims (Instance.AIMTYPE = 1) fall under this code. Individual component aims may fall at either FE or HE level and should be coded accordingly.
