This section is currently under review and an amended section is in the process of gaining QLIC approval for 2019-20
The programme specification, and associated programme documentation, may be considered as the ‘contract’ between the University (as the awarding body), its Departments and Faculties, and its students, which sets out the terms of delivery of a programme.
Within this context, it is recognised that it may be necessary to make changes to existing programmes from time to time, in order to maintain the currency of the provision, to satisfy the requirements of accrediting or commissioning bodies, or to enhance the student learning experience.
These changes must be approved through the processes described in this section to ensure that staff, students, applicants, and other interested parties have access to accurate definitive programme information at all times. Modifications have been categorised according to their significance for the programme as a whole (see section 4.1 Definitions), and the approval processes tailored so that they are proportionate to the changes being proposed (see section 4.2 Approval Processes).
This section covers:
CSAT Syllabus Update Request Form
Chapter 2 (full text)
Routine updatingFor routine updates to modules and programmes, the Student Central Course & Student Administration Team should be notified using the
CSAT Syllabus Update Request Form.
Minor ChangesRefer to modifications to existing modules which relate to the teaching and learning experience.
Major ChangesRefer to modifications at the level of the programme.
T2.13 Request for Changes to Existing Provision
Chapter 2 (full text)
Proposals for minor changes should be presented on the
Request for Changes to Existing Provision (T2.13)
template. The approval of minor changes is delegated to faculties.
Because major changes affect the programme as whole, a panel approves the proposal and consultation must be recorded in more detail than for minor changes.
Deadlines for approvalIn order to ensure that changes are implementation for the next academic year it is important to complete the approval process by the deadline set by the University.
