A code assigned by the institution which uniquely identifies the academic organisational unit providing a unit of study or part of a unit of study.
|Element name:||Academic organisational unit code|
|Units:||Code (alphanumeric), left justified, with trailing blanks if need|
|000 to zzz||Academic organisational unit code assigned by the institution|
In the collection the code assigned to each academic organisational unit must uniquely identify it within the institution and must remain unchanged from year to year, unless otherwise agreed with the Department of Employment, Education and Training.
It is important that institutions use the same academic organisational units (and code names) in the student load, staff and finance collections.
