The University has a process to ensure that any new or revised units or programmes are academically appropriate and sound, and that sufficient resource can and will be made available to ensure their successful delivery. To ensure this, all proposals to introduce or change units or programmes must be formally approved before being implemented. The Education Support Unit facilitates and supports this process.
We are available to provide advice to staff at an early stage of putting together a proposal, negotiating the approval process and using the online approval tool. Please email email@example.com or your faculty liaison contact in the Education Support Unit in the first instance or use the links below to find out more about how to put a proposal forward.
To manage the approval process, the University has implemented an Online Approval Tool for editing or creating new units and programmes. We will be continuing to use the tool through 2012/13. Please see the link below for more information.

The Catalogues are where you can view the current unit and programme information that is held centrally for your School/Faculty.
The list of current programmes, as approved by Senate, is recorded in the Regulations and Code of Practice for Taught Programmes.
Please regularly check the information held in the Catalogues to ensure that it is up-to-date. The information shown here reflects which is used in other systems, including SITS and Syllabus+.
If you spot any errors in your unit or programme data please contact the Student Systems and Information Office on firstname.lastname@example.org and include information on when the changes were approved and at what committee.
