Short nameHESACourse

This entity records the HESA course(s) returned in the Student and AP Student returns that the KISCourse relates to.

Applicable toEngland Northern Ireland Scotland Wales

All KISCourses where both KISCourse and HESACourse.HESACOURSEID existed in 2013/14 and/or 2014/15 and/or 2015/16.


This entity records the HESA course(s) that the course relates to. Unistats links to HESA course information that is one or two years in arrears. For C17061 HESA course identifiers for 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 should be provided.

Where a course links to more than one course on the HESA record all relevant Course.COURSEIDs should be given. This multiple linking should only occur where for systems or technical reasons the same KISCourse links to multiple courses on the HESA record, and should not be used to group cognate courses.

The same HESA course identifiers may be reported for different courses where the provider admits to, or markets, the same course under different names.

In adding links to HESA courses, only the HESA courses which are the embodiment of the course for which a record is being produced should be linked. For example, where a provider is producing two Unistats records for two similar courses one with a compulsory sandwich year (KISCourse.SANDWICH = 2) and one where the sandwich course is not available (KISCourse.SANDWICH = 0), then the Unistats record where the sandwich course is not available should only link to the non-sandwich course on the HESA and vice-versa.
