Coding notes

This field must include a name that is meaningful in determining the location of the Campus. Specific campus names which do not indicate campus location should not be included (i.e. St Francis of Assisi campus).

Coding a campus location to Distance Education:

Distance education courses are those courses offered via distance education, online learning or correspondence. These courses may require compulsory attendance at classes during certain blocks of time. In these cases the Campus Location can be coded as “Distance Education”.

Where a course is offered both in distance mode and at one or more campuses, multiple records should be reported.​
