Suspending recruitment to a programme of study is permissible for up to two academic years.

A programme suspension request should be submitted to the faculty Learning Quality and Standards Committee or designated sub-committee.

The Academic Planning Committee (APC) will then need to consider and approve any proposed suspensions endorsed by the faculty. If the programme is not reinstated after two years, it will automatically be discontinued.


DPP2: Temporary suspension of a programme - complete and take this form to your Faculty approving committee.

Timescales: Proposals to suspend recruitment to a programme of study may be submitted anytime up to and including the first week of December to be endorsed by Faculty in readiness for the following academic year.

Suspension of recruitment does not extend the period of approval for a programme and all periodic reviews will take place as per normal timeframes should the programme be reinstated.
