Course and programme proposals

New Proposals

All new taught course and programme proposals require approval from either the Undergraduate Studies Sub-Committee (USSC) or the Graduate Studies Sub-Committee (GSSC).

The School policy on programmes and courses (Word) sets out the School's policy and procedures for programme and course approval, modification, suspension and withdrawal.

Further information on course and programme approval can be found on the New courses and New programmes pages.

The Guidance and School principles section provides further information on different types of programmes, examinations, marking and class and seminar size limits.

Modifications to existing provision

Modifications to existing courses and programmes also require committee approval. The proposed modification will be considered either by a School Sub-Committee or its Chair, depending on the extent of the change. The appropriate Sub-Committee Secretary will advise on this. Please refer to Modifications to existing courses and programmes for further information.
