  • This attribute is meaningful only if the person is a student
    (eduPersonAffiliation = student).

  • A student may study in more than one study branch and may have reached a different study level in each of these study branches. Therefore, this attribute may have multiple values, defining the study level for each of the swissEduPersonStudyBranch3 values.

  • The content of the attributes swissEduPersonStudyBranch3 and swissEduPersonStudyLevel must be consistent: swissEduPersonStudyBranch3 should contain at least the study branch part of each swissEduPersonStudyLevel value.
