Policy and guidance on programme and course approval and management processes.
The Programme and Course Approval and Management Policy and accompanying guidance provides information on the approval of new and changes to/closure of existing programmes and courses. It covers the role of School Boards of Studies, College committees and University-level committees, including the approval levels required for different proposals. Practical guidance is provided on Policy requirements such as timescales for approval, issues to address in proposals, student involvement in proposals, and required documentation. The Policy and guidance covers all credit-bearing provision (including postgraduate research and collaborations) and non-credit bearing courses for external release and continuing professional development.
