Specialisation packet 2024

Version Details


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.


Providers are required to report a specialisation packet only when the specialisation code (E463) was not reported through the original course admission packet or when two or more specialisation codes (E463) apply to a student in a course.

Initial reporting requirement

Element Reporting requirement Deadline
E463: Specialisation code Required if a specialisation is known or on completion and has not been reported through the course admissions packet Within 7 days of the student completing the course


Each specialisation packet must have a value for specialisation code (E463) that is unique for the student in the course.

Revising data

A provider can update or correct the data in a specialisation packet after the initial packet is reported. The value on a specialisation packet is to be correct as at the current date or the course outcome date (E592), whichever date is earlier.
