Country of campus describes the location within the UK, or overseas, in which a campus is physically located.
Overseas campuses, where returned, should be coded to the appropriate country code. The coding frame is the same as that used in the HESA Aggregate Offshore record for Country of activity (Provision.COUNTRY).
The coding frame for this field is consistent with the Aligned Data Definitions (ADD) coding frame based on the ISO-3166-1 Alpha-2 list of country codes and adapted by the Office for National Statistics.
This coding frame is determined by the National Statistics Country Classification 2006 (NSCC), which is based on ISO 3166-1 Codes for the Representation of Names of Countries and their Subdivisions, and the United Nations' Standard Country or Area Codes for Statistical Use. In a small number of cases, the NSCC usage differs from the usage in ISO 3166 on which the NSCC is based. Where that happens, the ISO 3166 usage is given in brackets after the preferred UK usage, to facilitate cross-reference to the international standard. For example for code KR the description is Korea (South). The text in brackets, [Korea, Republic of], is the ISO 3166 description.
