Coding notes

The amount of EFTSL shown is to reflect all EFTSL generated and reported to DEST whilst the student was enrolled under the Research Training Scheme (RTS) in any previous course at the same level at another university(s).
This should only relate to students who are coded 320 or 330 at Element 490 on the Load/Liability File.
These data are only required for initial enrolment. Data within this element can be retained “as entered” for first enrolment or entered as “0000” for all future submissions of the Student Enrolment file.
The total amount of previous RTS EFTSL is to be reported for all students who are enrolled as RTS students unless there has been a gap of three years or more between the date on which the student ceased to be enrolled as an RTS student in his/her previous course and the date on which he/she commenced as an RTS student in the current course.
If a student has had several previous enrolments as an RTS student then only some of this EFTSL may need to be reported. If there has been a continuous period of 3 or more years where the student has not been enrolled as an RTS student then only those RTS EFTSL which were consumed subsequent to the most recent such gap are to be reported.
A gap in enrolment as an RTS student is measured from the date of officially ceasing to be an RTS student in one course to the date a subsequent enrolment as an RTS student commenced.
