Course Documentation

All collaborative centres are required to submit, annually, a copy of their course document, programme specification and student handbook for each of their validated programmes for the forthcoming academic year.

Programmes of study are subject to change through revisions to assessment, programme content and staffing (following approval from the University), and your course documentation must be updated to reflect these changes. Submitting these documents to us on an annual basis ensures that we have the most up to date information about your programmes. 

The document should be submitted to the University in English. It will be provided to your University of Wales appointed Moderator for review. 

Student Handbook


Collaborative Centres are also required to submit annually a copy of the student handbook for each validated programme. The handbook should include information contained in sections 3 and 4 of the Course Document (on the scheme, delivery and assessment), in addition to information on timetabling of delivery and assessment, student feedback, support, pastoral care and complaints procedures as well as detailed assessment regulations. 

Collaborative centres should ensure that the University's Unfair Practice, Appeals and Complaints procedures are contained within the handbook.

Information should be provided about the systems for engagement of students in the management of the scheme and the mechanisms for the appointment of student representatives.

For those centres offering schemes of study in a language other than English, the Student Handbook must be submitted in the language of delivery, as well as in English.
