What is a JACS code?



The Joint Academic Coding System (JACS) is used by UK institutions to identify the subject matter of programmes and modules. The JACS code determines whether or not courses are covered by the ATAS scheme and require clearance.  You will only need a JACS code if you are applying for a programme that requires an ATAS certificate. If this is the case, your offer letter will include an ATAS statement containing the relevant JACS code.

If you have any further queries regarding JACS codes or ATAS in general, please email
