Coverage

All Engagements where Qualification.QUALCAT = L0000 except where (Leaver.ENGENDDATE - Engagement.ENGSTARTDATE <= 14 days and RSNENGEND = 03, 05, 11, 12).

Description
This field records the study intention for the Engagement where the information in Qualification.QUALCAT is not sufficient.
Notes

Where the student is studying a research based higher degree at level L (Qualification.QUALCAT = L0000), this field records if the student's intention is to ultimately study at level D or L.

This field should be completed with the student's intention at the start of the Engagement and should not be updated unless the information was previously unknown and becomes known.

Some programmes described as "MPhil with possibility to transfer to PhD" are typically recorded with a level L qualification for students where they may be aiming for a research masters but where the normal pattern for the course is that they will progress to a PhD later in the engagement of study.

In this example providers should return the following:

Year 1: QUALCAT = L0000, STUDYINTENTION = D0003

Year 2-4: QUALCAT = D0003

9999 Not available should be returned where the student has not given an indication of their final intentions and so the information is unknown.

Reason Required
To allow analysis of students' actual study patterns compared to their initial intentions. It is common practice in UK higher education for research students to initially be registered on research masters programme with the intention to transfer to a doctoral programme. This field would allow the student's intention to be recorded.
