Making modifications to programmes and modules
The curriculum modification process allows changes to be made to programmes and modules, with appropriate consultation, and ensures that a record is maintained of the changes made. Changes may be required for a variety of reasons, including responding to feedback from students and external examiners.
The guide to curriculum modification outlines the process, how approval is gained, and when a modification is significant enough to necessitate a revalidation event (please also see the guide to validation).
Changes are recorded on the curriculum modification form which provides a record of the change, the consultation which took place, and how the modification was approved. This is processed via the faculty Development and Review Committee (DARC) or a revalidation event, as appropriate.
Queries about curriculum modification should be directed to your faculty Head of Quality in the first instance, or the Academic Partnerships Unit (APU) within the Strategic and International Partnerships Directorate for modifications to programmes/modules delivered via the Validation Service.
