Description This field records where students who will spend the majority of their Engagement outside the UK are currently outside the UK.
Applicable to England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales
Coverage All StudyLocations where applicable.

Some students are mainly studying outside the UK throughout their Engagement but are returned in the Student record as they will spend more than 8 weeks in the UK during their Engagement.

For those students:

  • Their time outside the UK is reported using StudyLocation.PRINONUK and StudentCourseSession.STUDYABROAD. No OffVenueActivity is returned for this time.

  • Their time in the UK is reported in the same way as any other student

An OffVenueActivity entity would be returned for these students if they undertook a placement in the UK but is not required to record the time they spend outside the UK.

This field must only be used for students who will be mainly studying outside the UK throughout their Engagement. For students mainly studying in the UK who spend time outside the UK this field must not be returned. Please see the locations data flowchart in the Further guidance on returning Venues and StudyLocation document for further information about how to return different activity.

For the purpose of this field, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man are classified as outside the UK.

For further information and examples, please see the Further guidance on returning Venues and StudyLocations document.
