level of study1
Level of study
  • Undergraduate
    • First degree, foundation degree, foundation degree bridging course, HE certificate or diploma
  • Postgraduate
    • Normal entry requirement is a qualification to degree level
  • ILR we use the field FUNDLEV which is:
    • level of the programme of study applicable to the funding council
long years of programme of study
Long years of programme of study
  • Long year (FT students)
    • 45 weeks or more within year of programme of study, OR
    • includes within-course short period of study, awarded as a summer school
  • Standard length course
  • For part-time courses the distinction depends on the length of an equivalent full-time course
price groups 1
Price groups (1)

These are (for Tables 1-3):

    • B
    • C
    • D
    • ITT and INSET (QTS)
  • Price group is always determined by the learndirect code(s) of the course the student is on

Learning Aims Reference Application (LARA)

  • The Data Service’s LARA should contain all learning aims
    • Inform the Data Service as soon as course is set up
  • If the learndirect code is missing or incorrect you must contact HEFCE as soon as possible via heifes@hefce.ac.uk so that we can liaise with the Data Service on your behalf
  • Correct information on LARA is important so that you can determine that it is a recognised HE course through qualification type and awarding body
fte for part time courses 1
FTE for part-time courses (1)
  • Calculated by comparing the time taken to study for a course part-time to the time taken to study for it full-time
  • A table is available in HEIFES12, Annex J, that contains guidance to assist with this

Follow guidance in HEIFES rather than the Education (Student Support) Regulations 2011

Guidance on what fees may be charged and fee loans provided for eligible students, should be sought from Student Finance England

  • Charged regulated fees under the fees and funding regime being introduced in 2012-13
    • new-regime
  • Includes part-time students
  • Full guidance in HEIFES12, Annex Q

Old-regime

  • Is in receipt of student support in 2012-13 that reflects the entitlements that apply to students who commenced their studies prior to 1 September 2012 and did not commence their study in 2011-12 and intermit within two weeks of starting, before returning to study in 2012-13
  • Not being charged regulated fees under the fees and funding regime being introduced in 2012-13
  • AND
  • Student is ‘continuing’, on an ‘end on course’ or ‘transferring’

Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (3)

‘Continuing’ – For HEFCE funding purposes only

  • Without any breaks, save for normal vacation time, and allowed for under the intermission rule below, the student is aiming for the same qualification, in the same subject and mode of study as they were before 1 September 2012
  • The intermission is for no more than 12 months plus any normal vacation period

Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (4)

‘End on course’ – For HEFCE funding purposes only

  • An ‘end-on course’ means a first degree with honours taken (disregarding any normal intervening vacation) immediately after successful completion of one of the following qualifications:
    • Higher National Certificate (HNC)
    • Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE)
    • Higher National Diploma (HND)
    • Diploma of Higher Education (DipHE)
identification of old regime and new regime students 5
Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (5)

‘End on course’ – For HEFCE funding purposes only

    • foundation degree
    • first degree without honours
  • and where two courses are studied in the same mode of study (that is, either both are full-time or both are part-time)'.
  • In most cases, the successful completion of the lower level qualification counts towards the first degree with honours.
identification of old regime and new regime students 6
Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (6)

‘End on course’ – For HEFCE funding purposes only

  • Successful completion means that the student has achieved in assessment the academic standards necessary to be awarded the qualification
    • Does not need to be at the same institution
    • Does not include other combinations
      • E.g. CertHEto DipHEtop up

Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (7a)

‘End on course’ - Example

A student studies full-time at a further education college towards an HNC during the 2011-12 academic year. Upon successful completion of the HNC, they progress at the college to a full-time HND starting in September 2012. Following successful completion of the HND, the student progresses to a full-time first degree with honours at a higher education institution in the 2013-14 academic year.

Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (7b)

‘End on course’ - Example

A student studies full-time at a further education college towards an HNC during the 2011-12 academic year. Upon successful completion of the HNC, they progress at the college to a full-time HND starting in September 2012. Following successful completion of the HND, the student progresses to a full-time first degree with honours at a higher education institution in the 2013-14 academic year. In this case, the HND cannot be treated as an end-on course to the HNC and therefore the student would be treated as subject to the new regime in 2012-13 and each subsequent year.

Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (8)

‘Transferring’ – For HEFCE funding purposes only

  • On the recommendation of the academic authority, a student ceases one course before its completion and starts another in the same mode of study (that is, either both the discontinued course and the new course are full-time and sandwich, or both are part-time) and at the same level (either both undergraduate or both postgraduate). AND
    • The course from which the student is transferring needs to have started before 1 September 2012
identification of old regime and new regime students 9
Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (9)

‘Transferring’ – For HEFCE funding purposes only

  • The transferred course need not be in the same subject, same qualification aim or be at the same institution as the discontinued course
  • 12 months break (beyond normal vacation periods) is allowed
    • Cease one course and start another
  • Recommendation of the academic authority means that it was agreed by (i) the institution where the transfer is between courses at the same college or (ii) both colleges where the student changes institution.
identification of old regime and new regime students 10
Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (10)

‘Transferring’ – Examples

  • A full-time student commences study in 2011-12 for a HND in engineering, but on the recommendation of the academic authority changes to study full-time from 2012-13 for a BSc in mathematics at the same college instead. The student has retained their eligibility for student support under the regulations that applied up to 2011-12.
identification of old regime and new regime students 11a
Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (11a)

‘Transferring’ – Examples

  • A full-time student commences study for a BA in French in 2011-12, but decides (for whatever reason) that they no longer wish to continue the course and so they withdraw. The student subsequently decides to commence study for a BA in history at another institution from 2012‑13.
identification of old regime and new regime students 11b
Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (11b)

‘Transferring’ – Examples

  • A full-time student commences study for a BA in French in 2011-12, but decides (for whatever reason) that they no longer wish to continue the course and so they withdraw. The student subsequently decides to commence study for a BA in history at another institution from 2012‑13. Because withdrawal from the French degree and commencement of the history degree were not agreed by both institutions, the student is not treated as a transfer and is therefore treated as new-regime.
identification of old regime and new regime students 12
Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (12)

Things to note:

  • Students should not be recorded as old regime just because they are not eligible for student support and regulated fees (e.g. postgraduate students)
  • HEFCE funding purposes only
identification of old regime and new regime students 13
Identification of old-regime and new-regime students (13)

Things to note:

  • In each of the cases (continuing, transferring or on an end-on course), students should be treated as if they were studying full-time if they are:
    • On a sandwich year-out
    • Repeating part of their full-time course on a part-time basis at the same college and retain their previous entitlement to full-time student support
    • On the final year of a full-time course that is completed in less than 24 weeks, so that their mode of study in HEIFES changes from full-time to part-time

Home and EU; island and overseas
  • Island and overseas:
    • Generally those from the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man or from outside the EU or specified territories
    • Not included in funding allocations or student number targets
  • Home and EU:
    • Students that are not island and overseas are Home and EU
hefce fundable non fundable 1

HEFCE non-fundable;

  • (Old-regime students only) Students otherwise HEFCE-fundable whose places are funded by another EU public source e.g. NHS
  • Students on pre-registration nursing or midwifery courses and certain allied health professions
    • New-regime students on courses which are provided under a contract with an NHS organisation, lead on successful completion to professional registration as a dental hygienist/dental therapist, occupational therapist, operating department practitioner, orthoptist, physiotherapist, radiographer or radiotherapist

  • ITT (QTS) and INSET (QTS) students
  • Students aiming for the same qualification at the same institution on instances that prior to 2012-13 counted towards the delivery of funding or student number targets relating to student numbers co-funded with employers
hefce fundable non fundable 3
HEFCE-fundable; non-fundable (3)

HEFCE non-fundable;

  • ‘Students at FECs that we did not fund directly in 2011-12, who are continuing on courses that they commenced at the college prior to 2012-13. This includes where earlier years of the programme of study were supported indirectly through a franchise arrangement from a lead institution that we funded directly, because we expect to continue to provide funding in respect of such students through the institution with which they registered when they started their course. Where a student supported through a franchise-in arrangement ceases their course in 2011-12, and then starts a new course to be directly funded at the college for 2012-13 (for example a top-up programme to an honours degree), then they may be included as HEFCE-fundable for the new course, assuming the other criteria for that status are met’
hefce fundable non fundable 4

non completion definition 3
Non-completion definition (3)
  • In order to be counted as a completion, a student must complete all the modules they intended to complete in the year of programme of study within 13 calendar months of the start of the year of programme of study. In order to complete a module, the student must either:
    • Undergo the final assessment in the module, or
    • Pass the module, where this can be achieved without undergoing the final assessment as they already have enough marks in that module to be awarded credit for it

Non-completion definition (4)

Things to note:

  • Applies to all forms of assessment not just exams
  • Links to ILR
    • Non-completing students should be recorded as FUNDCOMP = 2
non completion
Non-completion

Examples - completion or non-completion?

  • A full-time student starts the year of programme of study in October 2012 intending to study 8 modules, all having exams in June 2013. The student turns up to the final exam for all modules in June.
  • As in 1, but in one module the student did not attend the final exam in June (assuming it’s impossible to pass without taking this exam).
non completion1
Non-completion

Examples - completion or non-completion?

As in 1, but for one module the final exam only constitutes 10% of the mark and the award of credit is only based on overall mark. Having achieved 100% in all the coursework the student has passed the module prior to the final exam and does not attend.

As in 1, but the student interrupts their study part way through the year due to illness, intending to return 12 months later to carry on where they left off.

Years of programme of study meeting the following criteria potentially count towards the student number control limit that we have set for 2012-13, and should be included in Table 6:

  • EITHER
  • They are for HEFCE-fundable or employer co-funded FT UG students active in the academic year 2012-13
  • AND
  • The students have not been HEFCE-fundable or employer co-funded students in either of the preceding two academic years as students of the same college

The content of Table 6 (2)

OR

  • They are for HEFCE-fundable FT students aiming for a PGCE commencing a programme of study in the academic year 2012-13
  • In either case, for a year of programme of study to be counted the student must have not withdrawn from their programme of study within two weeks of starting: that is, they have undertaken sufficient activity to be required to be included in the ILR return
