The reporting schedule for all 2020 data submissions is available at: Reporting 2020 higher education data deadlines.
You will be able to use HEPCAT to report all your 2020 data, using the existing 2019 structures and values*.
Please note that your submissions are required in an earlier timeframe. 2020 data must be reported by 31 January 2021, and verified no later than 31 March 2021. This should ensure the outcomes for all units of study and courses are determined and reported prior to data verification on 31 March.
This will be formalised in an update to the 2020 Ministerial Notice shortly.
Where new 2020 values have been captured these should be mapped to 2019 values using your best judgement to report in HEPCAT. To help you convert to 2019 values, we have published the "TCSI factsheet: TCSI mapping tables 2020 to 2019" available from the "fact sheets" tab on the TCSI resources page.
When can I start reporting 2020 higher education census dates?
You can start reporting your 2020 higher education Student submissions in HEPCAT at any time from Monday 15 June 2020.
The upgrades to HEIMS to include the renewable HELP balance and apply the upper HELP limits to higher education aviation courses for 2020 have now been completed. This will be in production from next Monday.
* If you are planning to be a TCSI early adopter we will work with you to determine a timeframe for you to cut over to TCSI. We expect this to be in December 2020.
