Coding notes

The code to be assigned to a specialisation is to be selected from the field of education classification.

Refer to Appendix E – Field of Education Classification.

The specialisation code would normally be different to the code assigned to indicate the field of education for a course because the specialisation code will reflect the majors undertaken by a student.

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