All StudentCourseSessions except where Engagement.INCOMINGEXCHANGE exists or (SessionStatus.STATUSCHANGEDTO = 02 for the entire reference period) or (Leaver.ENGENDDATE - Engagement.ENGSTARTDATE <= 14 days and RSNENGEND = 03, 05, 11, 12).
The field records the majority source of tuition fee funding to the StudentCourseSession.
Student Loans Company (SLC)
Where the SLC pays a student's fee in full or pays the majority of the fee, 5026 SLC would be returned in this field.
Unless otherwise specified below, in cases where there is a 50/50 split between different sources, either may be returned as the majority source.
If there is a 50/50 split between the SLC and the student's own funds, then 5026 SLC would be returned.
If there is a 50/50 split between the SLC and another source (other than the student's own funds), the other source should be recorded in this field.
If the student is known to be using a postgraduate loan from the SLC to pay their fees, 5026 SLC should be returned in this field. If the student is paying their fees directly to the provider and it is not known whether they are using a postgraduate loan (or another source) to do so, 5050 Fee paid by student should be returned.
If the student is receiving any funding from the SLC, the Student.SSN field must be returned.
5050 'Fees paid by student'
Valid entry 5050 'Fees paid by student' should be returned where the majority of the StudentCourseSession was paid for by the student i.e. where there is a minority of award, fee loan or financial backing.
Other valid entries should be used in preference to 5050 where it is known that the student has received their funds from one of the sources listed here, for example when an employer is paying for the course and has given the money to the student, this would need to be returned as valid entry 5028.
5028 'Student's employer'
5028 ‘Student’s employer' should be used in preference to other codes where it is known that the source of the tuition fees is the student's employer. For example, if the student is employed by a charitable foundation that pays their fees, 5028 should be returned rather than 5030 'Other charitable foundation'.
School Direct programmes (Non-Early Years Initial Teacher training programmes)
The Department of Education (DfE) has provided some guidance for instances associated with the School Direct programme.
For School Direct salaried students (Engagement.ENTRYRTE =03), INVOICEHESAID must be returned as 0028 'Student's employer'.
For School Direct tuition fee students (Engagement.ENTRYRTE =02), INVOICEHESAID must be returned as the appropriate source of the tuition fees.
This code should be used for students that the DfE(NI) fund directly, such as some PhD enrolments.
This code should be used for students that the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) fund directly.
5045 Other UK Research Council
This code should be used for students where the research council is not specified or there is cross-council funding.
