A code which identifies whether a student had commenced and/or completed a Higher Doctorate, Doctorate, Master's Degree or other postgraduate course; and the last year in which the student was enrolled in such a course.
|Element name:||Prior postgraduate course; year |
|Units:||Code (numeric), right justified, with leading zeros if needed|
|001||Non‑overseas student but not a commencing student |
A commencing non‑overseas student for whom a Higher Doctorate, Doctorate, Master's Degree or other postgraduate course:
|2YY||Commenced but not completed all the requirements and the last year of enrolment in such a course was YY|
|3YY||Completed all the requirements and the last year of enrolment in such a course was YY|
|999||No information on such a course|
YY is replaced by two digits indicating the last year in which the student was enrolled in a prior postgraduate course (e.g. "81" would indicate 1981). If no information is available for year, code as "2AA" or "3AA".
If data are reported for students other than non-overseas students, DETYAPAC will identify such students using Element 358 (Citizen/resident indicator) and will ignore the data during edit validations and the data for them will be re-coded as "000" when data are loaded to DETYA's database.
