The Provider profile collection records the campus or campuses information of the reporting higher education provider (HEP).
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All higher education providers (HEPs).
Campus information is required for all campuses of the reporting higher education provider (HEP) which are located within the UK. HEPs are now required to return campuses located outside the UK in order to align with the Research Excellence Framework 2021.
A separate campus identifier should be used when a merger takes place, to identify any merged HEPs as separate campuses.
In cases where a provider has a single campus they should return an entry with the generic value 'A', indicating the main campus or entire HEP'
For providers in England:
A separate campus identifier should be returned if 25 or more students are studying at the campus and it is at least 1km away from another location. In exceptional circumstances campuses that are over 1km apart may not need to be separately identified, if for example they are advertised as one and students frequently move between the two locations.
Occasionally it may be appropriate to return campuses with fewer students, provided these are geographically distinct and separately marketed to students.
The Office for Students and Research England expect separate campus identifiers for any part of the HEP funded separately e.g. University of London - Institutes and activities, even where these do not meet the other criteria.
For providers in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales:
A separate campus identifier should be used if a significant number of students, for example 25 or more, are studying at a campus that is in a different city/town. Occasionally it may be appropriate to return campuses with fewer students, provided these are geographically distinct and separately marketed to students.
Campus information is required for all separate locations based in the UK. In addition, in order to align with the Research Excellence Framework 2021, campuses based overseas are also required to be returned. The return of overseas campuses is strongly encouraged even if the HEP has no REF staff members.
