Student 2020/21 - CourseCourse
Fields required from institutions in All fields
return to field list
A combination of subject and qualification that defines what a student is aiming for.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
Compulsory for all returns
Every Instance must be linked to one (and only one) course. Course records can exist without links to any Instances if it is easier for a provider to return all courses rather than just those that are active in the reporting year.
The Course.COURSEID field is the primary key for the course entity. It also exists on the Instance as a foreign key.
Where provision within the provider allows multiple possible qualification outcomes, providers must return separate course records for each. Even where groups of students aiming for different qualification outcomes are taught in the same classes, each group must be returned on a different course with a different course aim.
Where provision is conducted at multiple locations and students only study at one location or another (not both), separate courses should be returned. This should be based on the campus definition used in Provider Profile and returned where applicable in the DeliveryOrganisationAndLocation entity.
Quality rules relating to this entity are displayed here.
