Programme and Unit Development and Approval

New & High-risk programme changes - if deemed high risk by the relevant Faculty Education Director this is a two stage process requiring a business case and an academic case to be approved by the School, Faculty and University.

Changes to programmes - if deemed low risk by the relevant Faculty Education Director these are approved at School and Faculty level without the need for a business case.

New units and changes to units - normally approved at School and Faculty level unless the cumulative changes are deemed high-risk.

Annual unit updating – no approval required for changes to unit description, director, teaching block (including running/not running) and pre- and co-requisites.
