    Additional information

    Postgraduate courses are those leading to higher degrees, diplomas and certificates (including Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE at level M) and professional qualifications) which usually require a first degree as an entry qualification (i.e. already qualified at level H).

    Undergraduate courses are programmes of study at level H, I, J and C including, but not limited to, 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), postgraduate bachelors degrees at level H, enhanced first degrees (including those leading towards obtaining eligibility to register to practice with a health or social care or veterinary statutory regulatory body), first degrees obtained concurrently with a diploma, Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE at level H), foundation degrees, diplomas in HE with eligibility to register to practice with a health or social care regulatory body, Higher National Diploma (HND), 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 qualifications framework levels 4 and 5, post-degree diplomas and certificates at undergraduate level, professional qualifications at undergraduate level and 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. Entrants to these programmes of study do not usually require an HE qualification.

    Further education qualifications include Diplomas, Certificates and NVQ/SVQs 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.

    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.
