Programme approval and management

De Montfort University (DMU) devolves responsibility for the approval of most taught provision to faculties, meaning that they take responsibility for the validation of new programmes and the modification of existing ones. Devolved provision normally means programmes delivered by DMU staff on campus, in a clinical or corporate setting, or by distance learning.

Devolved provision is managed within procedures defined by the Department of Academic Quality (DAQ). DAQ maintains oversight of changes to devolved provision by monitoring and supporting programme validation and curriculum modification.

Responsibility for the approval of non-devolved (collaborative) provision is managed by the Academic Partnerships Unit (APU) within the Strategic and International Partnerships Directorate. Non-devolved provision refers to situations in which partner institutions deliver or support an element of, or an entire, DMU programme. Responsibility for the modification of non-devolved provision lies with the owning faculty or with APU for Validation Service provision.

For further information on all aspects of programme approval and management, please contact Henrietta Branston.
