Coding notes

Assign a code to each course which uniquely identifies it within the Higher Education Provider. The code should remain unchanged from year to year.

For every Course of Study record where E310 equals 04-13, 20, 21 or 22, there must be at least one Campus File record, matching on Element 307 (course code).

Every course that has Commonwealth Assisted and/ or domestic fee paying places must be included on this file.
