4.2.1 Proposals for minor changes should be presented on the Request for Changes to Existing Provision (T2.13) template.
4.2.2 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.
Note: the process for obtaining approval for variations from the regulations is set out in section 3.2.
4.2.3 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.
Except in the case of collaborative provision (for which periodic review incorporates an element of re-approval), programme teams going through periodic review should avoid presenting minor and major changes for approval by the review panel. These amendments should, wherever possible, be considered and approved by Faculty AESC prior to the panel event, so as to allow the panel to focus on the provision as a whole rather than on detailed changes to individual modules.
Where the need to revalidate a particular programme is identified during the preparation for the periodic review of a Subject area, this should also be undertaken as a separate exercise.
If amendments to existing provision are to be submitted during the periodic review exercise, particularly where they will require processing beyond the deadlines set out in section 4.2.4, advice should be sought from the link QAO and the link Curriculum & Student Information Manager on whether it will be possible to carry out the systems update in time for the start of the next academic year.
