A module change may be submitted anytime up to the first week in December for all proposals to be approved by Faculty in readiness for the following academic year.

Once you have reviewed your module, you may feel that it needs to be updated to take account of changes in the subject, or that it should be revised in response to comment by the External Examiner or to student feedback. 

If the changes you are proposing are very substantial, so that in effect what you are proposing virtually amounts to a new course, you should use the D1: New Module Proposal Form instead (see proposing a new module section). Advice on what constitutes very substantial change can be sought from GLT. Students affected by the changes should be notified in writing by the Faculty in advance of the changes being implemented.

The Faculty Learning, Quality and Standards Committee (FLQSC), or a designated sub-committee is responsible for the approval of all individual module changes that occur outside programme approval and review processes.


D2 Module Change Form - this form should be completed and taken to the Faculty approving committee.

Timescale for submission

Following FLQSC approval, the relevant Greenwich Learning and Teaching (GLT) Quality Officer ensures that all agreed module developments and module changes or discontinuations are distributed to the appropriate University Directorates and Offices for the purposes of updating the University's records.  These include the Curriculum Records Office (CRO) for the Banner records and The Planning and Statistics (PAS) Directorate which will add the relevant data from Banner to the University Key Information Sets (KIS).

Streamlined processes for changes due for the 2021-22 Academic Session

For module changes due for the 2021-21 Academic Year, the University has introduced a streamlined process as part of the Vice-Chancellor's Group's 'Making Things Simpler' initiative. This is to decrease the academic administrative burden for staff. The links below outline the process, as well as provide forms.
