Advice and forms related to developing a new module.

Submissions may be made at any time up to and including the first week of February for all modules to be approved by Faculty in readiness for the following academic year.

Most new modules are introduced as part of programme approvals and periodic programme reviews, but others may be added to the academic portfolio during intervening periods to update or enhance existing provision or to respond to changing market demand.   Advice about developing a new module can be sought from the Educational Development Unit (EDU), the Academic Quality Unit, from professional bodies, or from an appropriate external advisor such as a professional in the field, a discipline specialist or an external examiner.

The Faculty Learning, Quality and Standards Committee (FLQSC), or a designated sub-committee is responsible for the approval of all individual new modules, module changes and discontinuations that occur outside programme approval and review processes. New module approvals will also need to be accompanied by a completed Programme Change Form so the University can adapt the programme structure to accommodate the new module appropriately.
