Additional Information

The code to be assigned to a specialisation is to be selected from the field of education classification.

Up to four specialisation codes may be reported for a student’s course.

The specialisation code would normally be different to the code assigned to indicate the field of education for a course, because the specialisation code will reflect the majors undertaken by a student.
