As part of programme updating it may be necessary to discontinue old module options and cores, replacing them with new additions to the portfolio. 

When discontinuing old module options and cores and replacing them with new additions to the portfolio you should consider the wider impact of discontinuing a module before completing the module discontinuation request form.

As part of programme updating it may be necessary to discontinue old module options and cores, replacing them with new additions to the portfolio.  This will affect the programme structure and any proposal needs to make sure that programme documents are also updated.  Proposals to discontinue will also need to be accompanied by a completed Programme Change Form (see proposing a new module section).  You should consider the wider impact of discontinuing a module before completing the form.  For example, it may affect a number of different programmes within or beyond the Faculty (e.g. in a partner organisation).

The Faculty Learning, Quality and Standards Committee (FLQSC), or a designated working group is responsible for the approval of module discontinuations that occur outside programme approval and review processes. 

Forms 

Replacement of a discontinued module

If your discontinuation proposal entails replacement of a discontinued module with a new module please ensure that the new module proposal and revised programme structure(s) are also completed and endorsed by Faculty.

You may also us this form to "suspend" a module from a programme of study for a given period of time. In this case the module remains 'live' but not open to selection by students.

Timescale for submission

A module discontinuation may be submitted anytime up to and including the second week of December for all proposals to be approved by Faculty in readiness for the following academic year.
