Code 01 'Provider' includes anything organised as part of the provider's course (i.e. placements, field work etc.)

Code 02 should be used for sandwich placement students, to identify which mobility experience counts as their sandwich placement. This should exclude any placement that is part of an ERASMUS+ or Turing Scheme, which should be coded 03 or 05 as relevant. The definition of sandwich in this instance should be consistent with funding council definitions as set out in Instance.MODE.

Code 03 includes Erasmus Mundus, Comenius, Tempus and Erasmus for All.

Junior Year Abroad (JYA) schemes should be coded 04 'Other scheme'.

Students on the scheme should be coded 05 'Turing Scheme' only when in receipt of Turing Scheme funding. Students on the scheme not in receipt of Turing Scheme funding should not be coded 05 but instead 01 or 04 as appropriate.
