Coding notes

​The code assigned to each unit of study must uniquely identify it within the Provider and must remain unchanged in each of the submissions of the Student Load/Liability File for a reference year.

Where, for internal administration purposes, a Provider uses more than one code for a single unit of study, only one of those units of study codes should be reported.

Please refer to the Glossary for further information about terminology used in this document.
