Course approval

Course Approval Process

The University is introducing a new course approval process during 2017-18. This will be online only with a single level scrutiny and approval. It is anticipated that the new course approval workflow will be rolled-out in early 2018. In the meantime, departments wishing to undertake work on course proposals are encouraged to use the new course proposal form, which mirrors the new online workflow.

The new form is available in WORD format only. Please note that the form covers all levels of study and all types of courses; not all sections will be applicable to your proposal. Please feel free to remove sections of the form that do not apply (e.g. UG course specifications for Master's programmes; the collaborative section for courses without any collaboration).

The Course Proposal and all supporting documentation (e.g: Core MA1 forms, External Assessor reports etc.) should be submitted for processing to

Degree Apprenticeship Proposals

The form is not to be used for Degree Apprenticeships. If you wish to submit a proposal for a Degree Apprenticeship, please contact the Course Approval team via the email address below.

For any questions about course proposals, please contact us at courseapproval at warwick dot ac dot uk.

Minor Course Amendments

Whilst the online workflow is still within the testing phase, memorandum requests for Chairs Action will be accepted for minor revisions to Courses.

If the amendments being requested will have a significant impact on the Course, or its structure, the new course proposal form will need to be completed.

In order to determine if a memo request is possible or not, Departments can send an email, detailing the types of revisions required, to in order to confirm which process will need to be followed.
