Course Specifications

Welcome to the University's Course Specifications website.

There is a course specification for every undergraduate and taught Master's course. Each course specification sets out the aims of the course, the skills and knowledge a graduate from that course will possess, and how it is taught and assessed.

The University is introducing a new online course approval process during 2017-18. It is anticipated that the new course approval workflow will be rolled-out in early 2018. As part of the new online process the course specification database has been de-activated in preparation for the roll-out. In the meantime, departments wishing to undertake work on course proposals/specifications are encouraged to use the new course proposal form, which includes a section on course specifications and mirrors the new online workflow.

For any questions about course specifications or if you require a copy of an existing course specification, please contact us at
