It continued as part of the student data collection under the new policy and program initiatives introduced under the Opens in a new window: Higher Education Support Act 2003 (HESA) which was implemented in 2005. It was modified at this time to reflect the citizenship requirements of HESA. There have been no significant changes since then.|
