Programmes may require structural change and update in response to curriculum review and development and in response to feedback.

Academic staff are encouraged to modify and refresh programmes so that they remain up-to-date and fit for purpose.  A programme may require structural change and update in response to curriculum review and development, in response to feedback from students or external examiners or other external factors such as professional body requirements. 

Changes to programmes may be approved through a faculty committee process with specific deadlines set by the University.  Some changes will also require the endorsement of Academic Planning Committee (APC) of the University.   If you are considering making multiple changes, please contact the AQU team for advice. 

In order to comply with the requirements of the Competition and Markets Authority Guidelines to HE providers, your students should always be offered a formal opportunity to provide feedback on change proposals before you seek Faculty level approval.  Please use the relevant forms below (D4a and D4b) to consult your students and consider their views.

Forms needed to complete to change a programme and take to the Faculty approving committee: 

Timescale: Proposals for changing a programme of study may be submitted anytime up to and including the first week in December (on-campus programmes) to be endorsed by Faculty in readiness the following academic year.

Programme changes cannot be made in-session and put into place in the same session.
