JACS (Joint Academic Coding of Subjects) is the system used by UK institutions including the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), the Home Office HEFCE and HESA to identify the subject matter of programmes and modules.

see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint_Academic_Classification_of_Subjects and http://www.city.ac.uk/registry/jacs_codes.html for more details.

JACS is the subject tree chosen by the Depot (from the Prospero Project) as it matches both the UCAS classification and the national Funding Councils.
