|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
|Valid entries and labels|
Codes 12-14 should only be used for integrated taught masters degrees, where these are appropriate.
Code 99 should be used for 'Not known' and code 98 should be used for 'Not applicable'.
For instances where Course.COURSEAIM is M71 or H71 only, the DfE has advised that this field may be coded other than '98 Not applicable' for non-UK undergraduate qualifications. Providers should use their judgement to decide which code is the most appropriate for the qualification.
'98 Not applicable' includes those students who do not have an undergraduate degree.
This may be the case, for example, with students studying for PGCE (FE).
