Unit of Study Completions (CU) scope

Version Details

Version: 4.0
First Year: 2013
Last Year: 2013


The Unit of Study Completions (CU) Submission contains records reporting the Unit of Study Completions Status (E355) data for all the units of study undertaken by students in the reference year.

There must be a record in the CU Submission for every record reported on all the Student Load/Liability files submitted for the reference year.


The CU Submission is reported once each year.

Timing of submissions is shown in the Reporting Schedule for the relevant reporting year.


The Unit of Study Completions Submission consists of a single CU file.

nformation about the structure and the elements that are included in the Unit of Study Completions Submission can be found in the structure document for the relevant reporting year..

Each record in the CU file must have a unique combination of the following elements:

  • Student Identification Code (E313)
  • Course Code (E307)
  • Unit of Study Code (E354)
  • Unit of Study Census Date (E489)

These values uniquely identify a record and must be the same as originally reported in the Student Load/Liability.

Records are to be excluded for units of study which have been remitted or deleted.

A student may have undertaken a unit of study more than once in a reference year. For example, a student may repeat a unit which has been failed. Where repeats occur, completion status may differ between records with the same values for Unit of Study Code (E354), providing they have different values for the Unit of Study Census Date (E489).
