• 4. Modifications to existing approved provision

    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. 

    This section covers:

  • Definitions

    Approval processes

    • Minor changes
      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.
    • Major changes
      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 approval
      In 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.
