This field contains the higher education provider's (HEP's) own campus identifiers.
|England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales
All higher education providers (HEPs).
This field will collect the HEP's own campus identifiers. HEPs should use 'A' for 'Main campus' or 'Entire HEP', and 'B' - 'Z' or one digit (1-9) for other campuses. Lower case letters are not valid.
The criteria for assessing whether a campus identifier is appropriate are as follows:
Campus information is required for all separate locations based in the UK. In addition, in order to align with the Research Excellence Framework 2021, campuses based overseas are also required to be returned. The return of overseas campuses is strongly encouraged even if the HEP has no REF staff members.
There may be cases where a campus identified in the Provider profile record is returned in the Staff record but not the Student record, e.g. research sites. It is important that campus identifiers used in either of these two records are identified first in the Provider profile record. Please liaise with colleagues responsible for making these returns to ensure that details of all sites are returned in the Provider profile record.
