Programme closure

The Programme Closure Policy sets out the University's procedures for closing or suspending undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes and also taught and integrated PhDs.

The policy also covers programme closures which involve the replacement of a programme in a particular discipline with a new one.

The principle underpinning the policy is that in all cases the experience of students on the programme should be assured and monitored.
