Undergraduate Framework

Approved in May 2008 the framework contains the guiding principles for the design of all undergraduate awards validated by the University. Edge Hill’s Undergraduate Degree Framework provides both structural guidelines and a signpost to matters of policy that the University requires to be embedded in its taught provision.  Working within the current Academic Regulations, the framework is essentially permissive and aims to enable curriculum developers rather than restricting them and it also encourages the development of a contemporary curriculum.


The Undergraduate Framework contains a series of ‘Lenses’ focused on the student experience:

  • Graduate Attributes
  • Inductions and Transitions
  • Learning Literacies
  • Personal Tutors
  • Teaching, Learning and Assessment
  • Internationalisation
  • Work-based and Work-related Learning
  • Personal Development Planning
  • Technology Enhanced Learning
  • Employability
  • Internationalisation
  • Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

The Undergraduate Framework Wiki is a resource bank for colleagues working within the University, it is located under the A-Z list on ‘GO’ or can be accessed here.

The Undergraduate Framework Handbook can be accessed here.
