All courses where for any linked instance Instance.FESTUMK = 1, 3, or 4.
Where there are any HE level students on an instance linked to this course and funded by Welsh Government DfES, (code 3 in Instance.FESTUMK) then Course.COURSEAIM, Course.FEQAIMC, and Course subject must all be completed.
Providers in Wales
Providers in Wales should populate this field with a value obtained from the Qualifications Wales QiW database.
Because of the way that Qualifications Wales have allocated the Qualification Numbers, providers in Wales are required to remove slash characters in order for the Qualification Number to be returned in this field.
For internally validated courses not funded by the Welsh Government DfES, providers can use the non-specific code of '66666666' to identify these courses in this field.
If (after a discussion with Welsh Government DfES) a generic code or '66666666' is used within this field then Welsh Government DfES requires providers to also complete Course subject in order to give detail of the subject area of the qualification.
