Only part-time courses (KISCourse.KISMODE = 2) can be returned as 2 ‘Course is optionally available through distance learning’. Where a full-time course is available both through distance learning and other than by distance learning, this would be considered two distinct courses and two KISCourses must be returned.
In this instance, ‘distance learning’ refers to where students are not in attendance for the whole of their course, with the possible exception of occasional attendance, such as examinations or summer schools.
This field is required for all KISCourses.
