Description This field records the expected end date for the Engagement
Applicable to England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales
Coverage All Engagements where Engagement.INCOMINGEXCHANGE does not exist and there is a defined normal length for the programme of study

For taught students, this should include any planned assessment periods but not retakes.

For research students where the programme includes a planned writing up period, this should be included in the expected period of study.

This field does not need to be returned where there is not a defined normal length for the programme of study, for example fully flexible courses (Course.FULLYFLEX = 01).

This field must be updated where there are any changes to the expected end date of the Engagement. Examples will include but are not limited to:

  • Students transferring between courses with different expected end dates

  • Students deciding to take or not take a sandwich placement

  • Students taking an agreed break in learning

  • Students needing to resit part of their course

Quality Rules Quality rules to follow
