Exit awards packet (PIR) 2023

Version Details


The PIR exit awards packet is only used to report a higher education award course completion where the completed course is different to the course the student was admitted to study. Each PIR exit awards packet must be linked to an established PIR course admission packet and an established PIR course packet.


Providers report a PIR exit awards packet for each student who is to be granted a higher education award where the course leading to the award is related to, but does not exactly match, the course on the course admission record the provider has for the student.

NOTE: Completion of an award course that matches the course code on the PIR course admission record are reported by updating the PIR course admission packet with the correct E599: Course outcome code and E592: Course outcome date. Most completions do not require a separate exit award packet.

Reporting deadlines

Early exit awards awarded in 2023 are due to be reported by 13 September 2024.

UID5: Course resource key or

E307: Course code
Required for all in‑scope exit awards
E599: Course outcome codeRequired for all in‑scope exit awards
E592: Course outcome dateRequired for all in‑scope exit awards


Each PIR exit awards packet must have a unique combination of the values for:

  • course admission identifier (UID15 or combination of E313/E307)
  • course identifier (UID5 or E307)
  • course outcome date (E592).

Reporting notes

The course identifier (UID5 or E307) ) in the PIR exit awards packet must be the course for which the award is being granted. The course admission identifier (UID15 or E313/E307/E534) is the related course admission. If the student is not continuing with the course in the related course admission record, the course outcome code (E599) on that PIR course admission packet must be revised to indicate that the student has ‘transferred to complete a related course’. If the student is continuing the related course admission, the exit award should be reported as ‘completed but continuing a related course’.
