Change of Programme Title

Documentary requirements

To apply for a change to the title of a programme, you should complete the "Programme Change Form: proposed change of programme title" form.  It will also be necessary to update the Course Description Document, Programme specification and some modules profiles if they make reference to the programme title.  

Consideration and approval

The change form and revised documentation should be considered and approved by the School Programmes Committee.   School Programmes Committee may decide at this point that the change proposed constitutes a major/intermediate change and that further action is required.

Changes to programme titles and additions of exit awards requires approval by Senate.  This is because the Programme Regulations contain the names of awards and the exit awards available. This will be achieved via reporting to the Programme Regulations Scrutiny Group and their report to AQSC.  

Admissions Considerations

The change of a programme title is not possible for offer holders or current students unless students want and it is possible for them to transfer to new version of programme.

Post Approval

The Faculty CQA team is responsible for ensuring that all necessary action is taken to amend the programme in Banner and Curriculum Manager.

The FAR, in conjunction with Faculty and Registry SAA Teams, will ensure that the Programme webpages are amended.

The FAR, in conjunction with Faculty and Registry SAA Teams, will ensure that any University Regulations are updated.
