Course admission packet

The course admission packet is used to report the admission of students into courses and provide data on aspects of the student's admission and engagement in the course. Each course admission packet must be linked to an established student packet and established course packet. The data collected through a course admission packet may be referenced by one or more:

Basis for admission packet

The basis for admission packet is used to report basis for admission codes (E327) for the student's admission into a course. A basis for admission packet for a course admission will be created as part of the course admission packet if the provider reports a value for the basis for admission code (E327) when the course admission packet is established. Otherwise, a provider may create one or two basis for admission packets later to report up to two basis for admission codes (E327) for a course admission.

Course prior credit packet

The course prior credit packet is used to report the credit values and codes (E560, E561 and E566) when credit is applied towards the requirements of the course for the student. A course prior credit packet for a course admission will be created as part of the course admission packet if the provider reports credit values and codes (E560, E561 and E566) when the course admission packet is established. A provider may create as many additional course prior credit packets as necessary to add additional credits that are applied to a course for the student.

Specialisation packet

The specialisation packet is used to report specialisation codes (E463) for the student's course. A specialisation packet for a student in a course will be created as part of the course admission packet if the provider reports a value for the specialisation code (E463) when that course admission packet is established. Otherwise, a provider may create up to four specialisation packets later to report up to four specialisation codes (E463) for a student in a course.

HDR end-user engagement packet

The HDR end-user engagement packet is used to report one or more types of end-user engagement for a student undertaking a higher degree by research (HDR) course and the timeframes associated with each engagement. A provider may create as many HDR end-user engagement packets as necessary to report all the types of end-user engagements that apply to a student throughout their course and the timeframes that apply to each engagement type.

Scholarship packet

The scholarship packet is used to report one or more types of scholarships that a student is receiving under the Research Training Program (RTP) and the timeframes associated with each scholarship type. A provider may create as many scholarship packets as necessary to report all the types of RTP scholarships that a student receives throughout their course and the timeframes that apply to each scholarship type.

RTP stipend amount packet

The RTP stipend amount packet is used to report the amount of stipend awarded to a student under the Research Training Program (RTP) for each calendar year. A provider may create as many RTP stipend amount packets as necessary to report each year for which the student is awarded a RTP stipend for the course.
