    Additional information

    Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE at level M) and Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE at level H) are separated into two entries in this field.

    Other postgraduate includes postgraduate diplomas, certificates and professional qualifications, institutional postgraduate credits and no formal postgraduate qualifications.

    First degree includes first degrees (including eligibility to register to practice with a health or social care or veterinary statutory regulatory body/Architects Registration Board), first degrees with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)/leading to Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS)/registration with a General Teaching Council (GTC), enhanced first degrees (including those leading towards obtaining eligibility to register to practice with a health or social care or veterinary statutory regulatory body) and first degrees obtained concurrently with a diploma.

    Foundation degrees (e.g. FdA, FdSc) were introduced to provide vocational higher education (HE) qualifications at level I.

    Other undergraduate includes qualifications equivalent to and below first degree level, including, but not limited to, diplomas in HE (including those with eligibility to register to practice with a health or social care regulatory body), Higher National Certificate (HNC), Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE), Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE), qualifications leading to Early Years Teacher Status (EYTS) only, foundation courses at HE level, National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ)/Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ) levels 4 and 5, post-degree diplomas and certificates at undergraduate level, professional qualifications at undergraduate level, other undergraduate diplomas and certificates including pre- and post-registration health and social care and veterinary courses and courses in Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector, other formal HE qualifications of less than degree standard, institutional undergraduate credit and no formal undergraduate qualifications. (Not included: Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE at level H) (shown separately), and not foundation degrees (shown separately)).

    Further education includes diplomas, certificates and National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ)/Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ) at level 3 and below, A/AS levels, Advanced Highers/Highers (Scotland), GCSEs, Intermediates (Scotland), HE Access courses, Welsh for Adults and other qualifications below HE level.

    Where an instance had no QualificationsAwarded entity associated with it, this field will be a double underscore.

    Technical Specification

    The Student and AP student records differ in their coverage of qualifications awarded, with the AP student record using a smaller subset of the codes used in Student to reflect a smaller remit. The technical specification for this field is therefore expressed on a per-collection basis.
