Additional information

This derived field is created in the Student record (Cyy051). It uses the data in Instance.MODE.

Full-time students include all students studying full-time (for more than or equal to 24 weeks in the academic year).

Part-time includes those studying part-time, during the evenings only, or full-time for less than 24 weeks in the academic year.

From 2013/14, FE students in England must return 99 in Instance.MODE, and are prevented from using other valid entries. Consequently, all such students derive to valid entry 8 'FE students in England' in XMODE01. FE students in other administrations must use other Instance.MODE codes and thus continue to derive to other valid entries in XMODE01 as appropriate.

Apprenticeship Standards 'wrapper' programme aims must be returned as 98 in Instance.MODE. All such students derive to valid entry 9 'Not applicable' in XMODE01. Component aims are returned using an appropriate code from the rest of the range.
