Notes

This field need not be submitted where the provider delivering all or the majority of the teaching is the one submitting the record.

The identifier for the primary provider of teaching entered in this field must be obtained from the UK Register of Learning Providers.

Submitted UKPRNs will be verified against a valid list obtained from the UKRLP.

If an appropriate UKPRN is not available, providers are able to use the generic codes:

Generic codes:

  • 4002 Other Non-UK provider
  • 4003 Other public body in the UK
  • 4004 Other private body in the UK

Code 4002 should be used for any body (educational or other) based outside the UK. This should also be used for Non-UK providers that have a UK campus, but no UKPRN.

If the provider is providing teaching at the workplace then no entry is required in this field. Where the provider is buying in teaching from another body, which could be the student's employer, these cases will be identified by the codes 4003 and 4004.

This field need not be submitted where the provider delivering all or the majority of the teaching is the one submitting the record.
