Programme specifications define the academic standards of University courses. You can view and download approved specifications via this page.
Programme specifications have a layered format consisting of:
- a summary of programme aims and intended outcomes
- an outline of the course structure (typically in the form of the approved programme regulations)
- a skills matrix (undergraduate courses only), showing how the intended learning outcomes are delivered through the core modules which make up the programme
- a set of module specifications
The information provided in programme specifications refers to separate regulations, strategies and policies relevant to the specific programmes. For ease, these can be found by following the links below:
- Senate Regulation 5: Regulations governing undergraduate programmes of study
- University Education Strategy (login required)
- University Assessment Strategy (login required)
- Policy on Accreditation of Prior Learning
- Undergraduate Year Abroad programme specification details
