UCAS Application Scheme Code
return to field list
This field records the UCAS Application Scheme Code which is a four or nine character code issued by UCAS.
All entrants who entered this Instance via UCAS.
The UCAS Application Scheme Code together with the UCAS Personal identifier (Student.UCASPERID) forms the UCAS Application Identifier. The Application Scheme Code will normally be a four character code (two alpha and two numeric or one alpha and 3 numeric) or the old style UCAS Application Number of nine numeric characters. For students entering from 2011/12 and onwards, the old style UCAS Application Number is no longer valid in this field, as it does not appear in UCAS transactions. The four character UCAS Application Code should be returned instead.
This information will be available from UCAS via the *J transaction.
This field is not required for entrants who did not enter a current Instance via UCAS.
