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).
Any changes being made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in preparation should be recorded on the COVID-19 modification form. Please refer to the accompanying guidance for further information, please note admin functions may vary between faculties. If you have any questions about the process or requirements, please discuss with your Faculty Associate Professor (Quality) in the first instance or contact Rebecca Thirlby within the Department of Academic Quality.
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 Associate Professor (Quality) in the first instance, or Educational Partnerships (UK) within the Department of Academic Quality for modifications to programmes/modules delivered via the Validation Service.
