All Engagements where applicable except where (Leaver.ENGENDDATE - Engagement.ENGSTARTDATE <= 14 days and RSNENGEND = 03, 05, 11, 12) or (SessionStatus.STATUSCHANGEDTO = 02 for the entire reference period) or (CourseInitiative.COURSEINITID = 027 or StudentInitiative.STUINITID = 027 or 030)

This field identifies if the student is an incoming exchange or visiting student.

This field should only be returned where the student is an incoming exchange or visiting student.

Less information is required for incoming exchange or visiting students. Therefore the return of this field will exclude the students from the coverage of several field/entities in the model. For example, module data is not required for incoming exchange or visiting students.

This field should not be used to record cases of a formal collaboration with a non-UK provider. These collaborative arrangements would generally involve the student being registered at both providers with study at one provider being a pre-requisite for study at, and award of qualification from, a provider in the UK. These arrangements should be recorded in CollaborativeProvision.COLPROVTYPEID.

EU programmes

ERASMUS+ or ERASMUS Plus is the EU programme which combines all the EU's current schemes for education, training, youth and sport. This includes the Lifelong Learning Programme (ERASMUS, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig), the Youth in Action programme, and the five international co-operation programmes (ERASMUS Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and the programme for co-operation with industrialised countries).

All incoming ERASMUS+ students (including Postgraduate ERASMUS+ Mundus and ERASMUS+ Action 1 students) should be coded as 01 Incoming ERASMUS+ student.

Turing scheme

Code 03 for incoming reciprocal Turing Scheme students is intended to capture incoming students who are studying with the provider as part of a reciprocal provider-level agreement whereby outgoing students are funded under the Turing Scheme. It is recognised that these incoming students would not be funded under the scheme.


Code 04 can only be used by providers in Wales. More information on Taith can be found here .

Reason Required
To identify incoming exchange or visiting students and monitor the Turing and Taith schemes, to remove these students from the coverage of certain fields where the data is not required.
