Notes

This field will be used to link DLHE and NSS data into the Unistats record where no HESACourse entity exists for this KISCourse.

This field uses the Higher Education Classification of Subjects (HECoS) coding frame. The HECoS classification provides definitions for each HECoS subject to assist in coding.

This field is required when both HESACourse or ILRAims entities are missing (i.e. for new courses).
