Notes

QualificationAwarded.QUALID captures the unique identifier for the qualification that the student has achieved. This field serves as a link to the Qualification entity which records the recognised academic award, the qualification category, subject(s) and awarding body where applicable.

For visiting students (where Engagement.INCOMINGEXCHANGE exists) the following codes must not be used and instead an accurate code must be returned instead:

D0005 Studying at level D, with formal or informal credit
E0005 Studying at level E, with formal or informal credit
H0020 Studying at level H, with formal or informal credit
I0013 Studying at level I, with formal or informal credit
L0003 Studying at level L, with formal or informal credit
M0024 Studying at level M, with formal or informal credit

Qualifications with these codes are only available to use in the Course.QUALID field and the associated Qualification.QUALCAT. 

Reason Required
To monitor outcomes, to analyse outcomes against study intentions.
