This field records the URL describing whether accreditation is dependent on choice.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
Where Accreditation.ACCDEPEND = 1.
This field should contain a URL that explains how the accreditation depends on module or other course choices made by the student.
Depending on how complex the accreditation is, the page that this URL points to could include a list of modules students would be required to take in order to gain accreditation. The aim is to provide students slightly more information than can be provided via the use of a tick box.
In most cases we would expect links to direct to information on the provider website. Links to accrediting bodies websites may only be used when they provide sufficient information on the module or other course choices students must make in order to gain the accreditation.
This field must not exist if Accreditation.ACCDEPEND = 0.
