Academic Planning

Before any new course can be added to the prospectus the University first establishes its fit with our Curriculum Strategy [PDF] and that the likely student demand will make it sustainable into the future. The Academic Planning Committee (APC) reviews all new course proposals, supported by business information and market research and evidence of the staffing and resources required to support them. Once approved by APC, programmes then enter a detailed design and development phase that culminates in formal Institutional validation.

More information about the academic planning process may be found in Chapter 4 of the Quality Management Handbook.
