Work Type Codes

These don't actually appear in the extracts (yet?). But this seems a reasonable place to record what the choices mean.

Work Type Description

COURS MMath Coursework
PAPER MMath Research Paper

These are actually program options for the Master's degree. The OUAC application will, according to mtowell, have all three options, but we don't know exactly when. According to GSO, these are “admission comments”.
