Student 2019/20 - Module status
Fields required from institutions in All fields
return to field list
This field records detail of whether modules span HESA reporting years.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All student on module records
|Valid entries and labels|
For providers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland where Instance.ENDDATE is in the previous reporting year and all modules for the instance are returned with MODSTAT 4 ‘Taken in a previous reporting year (outcome only)’, Instance.MODE should not be updated. For providers in Scotland, the appropriate dormant code should be returned in Instance.MODE.
Code 5 'Not coded' is an acceptable default code for use in this field unless otherwise indicated by the provider's funding council. Providers in Wales must not use code 5. Providers in England are encouraged to complete module information on the Student Record, to enable Office for Students to take this information into account in the future distribution of funding.
Code 6 should normally only be used where students have modules which genuinely span 3 reporting years. This is likely to be relatively rare, and will most likely be relevant to Postgraduate research students where a single module is being used to represent a programme of study.
For Welsh HEPs, the status of an APEL module (coded as StudentOnModule.APEL = 1, 2) can either be as for the same module not taken through APEL if the assessment is taken at the same time as other enrolments on that module, or, if the assessment takes place in a particular period it can reflect whether that period of time is contained within a reporting year or spans reporting years, as appropriate.
