  • Student identifier (SID)

Coverage All Engagements where a CollaborativeProvision.COLPROVTYPEID applies.

This entity collects information regarding two types of collaborative provision arrangements:

  1. Collaborative provision with an overseas provider.

  2. Formal collaborative arrangements to provide doctoral research training. This may be concurrent (students being jointly supervised) or sequential (the student starting at one provider and transferring to another).

    For more details on these types please see the guidance in CollaborativeProvision.COLPROVTYPEID.

The entity serves two purposes:

  1. Identifying Engagements that are part of one of these collaborative arrangements. The type is identified in CollaborativeProvision.COLPROVTYPEID.

  2. For sequential collaborative arrangements for doctoral research students, the provider that a student transfers to will record the identifiers returned by the provider the student transferred from in CollaborativeProvision.PARTNERSID CollaborativeProvision.PARTNERNUMHUS and CollaborativeProvision.PARTNERUKPRN.

For doctoral research students, this entity should be used in conjunction with the SupervisorAllocation entity which records the Unit of Assessment and organisation of the student's supervisor(s).
