Any proposed new courses, major changes* or new options added to existing courses at any level (UG, PGT or PGR) must be considered and agreed by the relevant departmental, divisional and University committees. This means it can take some time for such proposals to be approved. Student consultation is an important part of the process which should be managed by the department, so you should take account of this in your planning. For guidance on the process and likely timescales, please contact the Academic Office.
*A major change is anything which affects the overall aims of the programme or the way(s) in which it is delivered.
The divisional team works closely with departments on quality assurance matters, including Student Handbooks, exam conventions, examiners’ reports and student surveys. A range of information and guidance is available on the division’s Academic Office WebLearn site.
